“Boston, the greater community, law enforcement services, (they) understand that because we were attacked there is a sense of vulnerability,” he said, “And we have to be on our game in order to do our job.”

Shaw says they are working to get out in front of any threat, and he wants the public to be prepared and involved in keeping all of us safe.

“We’re all involved (and) we all have a role,” he said, “So in terms of ‘see something, say something,’ it’s critical in terms of any potential threat that’s out there.”
