CITY SOUNDS THE ALARM
SECURITY will be ramped up across Melbourne in the wake of yesterday’s terrorist attack as police look to secure Remembrance Day events.
Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton said the events would go on as planned but extra officers would be on duty. “There’ll be additional police allocated for all those events through the weekend,” he said.
A new siren system installed across the city was used for the first time during yesterday’s attack. The system features 65 speakers at key city locations to enable police to broadcast mass warnings of safety threats.
Melbourne has a packed weekend of sport, with Stakes Day at Flemington today and an A-League fixture at AAMI Park tomorrow.
