BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The defense has rested and closing arguments are next, which means the trial of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin is wrapping up.
Police throughout the area are watching the courtroom action very closely, preparing for any reaction that may result in crowds or unrest.
Broward Sheriff's Office has held a series of community meetings.
PBSO is following events from Sanford, and Boca PD tells us:
We are aware of the community interest in the trial. We will continue to monitor channels of communications including social media. We will continue to share information with other agencies from throughout South Florida.
The goal for all of these agencies: be prepared without being a catalyst for any post-verdict display of emotion.
