The Toronto police will increase their presence and security measures around the Rogers Center during all Toronto Blue Jays games.

To ensure the safe flow of pedestrian traffic, a number of road restrictions will also be in effect in the immediate area surrounding the Rogers Centre.

Bremner Boulevard will be reduced to one lane, in both directions and Rees Street will be available for those needing parking.

A staging area for accessibility services will also be set up on Rees Street at Bremner Boulevard, for Gate 7 access and Blue Jays Way, in front of the Marriott Hotel, for Gate 13.

Police say the public may notice other security measures in the surrounding area, including an increased police presence and even the use of other public and private sector resources.

While there is no imminent threat at this time, security issues are closely monitored and changes will be implemented as required.
