”With the recent events in Boston we decided it would be a good year to make sure we had another assessment” said Brian McClintock of the Little League World Series .
They’re adding cameras and personnel. But they're also trying something new. They're relying on the community to watch out for suspicious activity.
Little League Officials suggests people with a smart phone download this app called "see something send something" -- it lets you take a picture if you see something suspicious -- and send it directly to state police.
McClintock says “With the help of everybody who's coming here we can make sure it stays as safe as possible. Fan of Little League Marian Johnston attends little league every year -- and she thinks asking for the community's help is a great idea.
“People have got to learn to look out for each other -- not pull the blinds down on people when you see something. Report it! You could save life” . Organizers with the little league say those security measures will all be in place before the first team arrives, a week from Friday.
