Security increased for Fourth of July

State and local police are promising a massive presence on the Esplanade for the Fourth of July celebrations, including state troopers in bright yellow vests, hundreds of local police officers, and more security cameras.

Police announced Wednesday that there will be swarms of law enforcement personnel, more than in prior years, as they sought to reassure revelers they will be safe at the first major public event in Boston since the Marathon bombings.
