Officer patrols have been directed to increase patrols in neighborhoods and around infrastructure. The Seattle Police Department has been in communication with the mayor’s office and the office of emergency management.

Seattle residents may see an increased police presence, authorities said, though there are no indications that there is a threat to Seattle.
