Prudential Center Boarded Up As Boston Prepares For Post-Election Protests

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The City of Boston is preparing for potential demonstrations over the coming weeks in the wake of the general election.

Tenants within the Prudential Center have been notified about extra security measures being implemented to prevent potential property damage and looting.

In case things get out of hand after Election Day on Tuesday, the Prudential Center is beefing up its security, boarding up windows and entrances, and working with Boston police. Office personnel are being told to expect to see increased security and police within the Prudential Center over the next two weeks.

Mayor Marty Walsh said there are no known threats in the City about any disruptions on Election Day, but he does expect demonstrations no matter the outcome.

"There's no questions about it, there will be protests probably on both sides, victories and losses," Walsh said Friday. "What's kind of alarming me is that the preparation we are putting into this election, we've never had to put into an election before."
