Security stepped up for James Joyce Ramble

The day after the bombings at the Boston Marathon, the organizer of the James Joyce Ramble reached out to public safety officials in Dedham.

“There will be more of a police presence, but it’s not going to be a military zone,” Martin Hanley said of Sunday’s 10K road race through Dedham.

“It’s a new reality, and we all have to be vigilant, and keep our eyes open and wide and sharp,” Hanley said. “My volunteers will be doing that, and the police will be doing that.”

Unlike in previous years, runners will not be able to leave their bags at a check-in area. Participants in the race and spectators are being encouraged to stow their belongings in their cars; no unattended bags will be allowed, said Hanley and Police Chief Michael d’Entremont.

“Various measures are being evaluated,” said d’Entremont, who would not provide details. “As always the cooperation, eyes, and ears of the public in general is greatly encouraged and relied on by public safety agencies in ensuring a safe and successful event.”

Hanley also said there will be a tribute to the bombing victims, including a performance of “America the Beautiful’’ by State Police Sergeant Daniel M. Clark, who is known as “the Singing Trooper.”
