Barclays Center reacts to Boston Marathon explosions

Per ABC Go:

The one local sports team scheduled Monday night was the Brooklyn Nets, playing the Washington Wizards at the Barclays Center.

“The safety and security of our guests and employees at Barclays Center are of paramount importance,” said Brett Yormark, CEO of the Barclays Center and the Nets.

“Barclays Center staff works very closely with the NYPD and other New York City agencies to ensure our stringent safety and security policies are strictly enforced.”

The official policy on how to handle a bomb threat was readily available at the public relations desk in the media section. I’m not sure if that’s a regular occurrence, but I’ve never seen it. Police officers were also outside the arena before the game.

UPDATE: ESPN reports that the Nets would not say whether security had been tightened. Some fans reported that there were more security measures; others said they didn’t see a difference.
