San Francisco police have increased patrols around city movie theaters featuring the movie “The Dark Knight Rises.”
The heightened security is in reaction to Friday’s shooting massacre inside a movie theater in Aurora, Colo., during a midnight screening of the highly anticipated Batman film.
San Francisco police said it wants to deter from possible copycats and reassure filmgoers.
“We will spare no resource to make sure that everybody gets to do so safely in San Francisco,” Police Chief Greg Suhr said Friday.
Anyone noticing any suspicious activity is encouraged to contact police, Officer Albie Esparza said.
