Police announce huge presence, more cameras for Fourth

Those who come to the Esplanade for the Fourth of July concert this year will notice a swarm of State Police troopers in yellow vests and more surveillance cameras will be mounted along the park and near the Hatch Shell where the Boston Pops will perform, officials said today.

It is all part of a part of a stepped-up security effort by officials in the wake of the April 15 terrorist bombing at the Boston Marathon finish line.
