SPOKANE, Wash. -- Police have increased the number of officers in downtown and will keep patrols out through Saturday night.
Police are doubling patrols and setting up a mobile command center outside the INB Center at Spokane Falls and Bernard. They will be managing officers from that spot and people will be able to come up to them with any concerns during the night.
Police say the command post will help them respond faster to any problems they have over the weekend. They say the extra units will help them respond to other hot spots including Hillyard, the Garland district, and along Division.
