AUSTIN -- There was increased security Monday in several major cities around the country and the world, including London, Washington D.C, and Austin.

Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo said the department is also closely monitoring the events in Boston.

"Although there is no specific threat directed toward the Austin area, the department has been placed on a heightened operational status," Acevedo said.

APD told KVUE News that city and county buildings are staying open as scheduled.
