    The Philadelphia Police Dept. is expecting at least 2 protest events in Center City tonight: 

    6:00 pm at Independence Mall, 535 Market St. and 7:00 pm at City Hall, 1400 JFK Blvd. Increased police deployment will be evident throughout Center City. 

    The Mayor's Office provided the following: 

    The City is not encouraging businesses to close down early. Businesses can take the following steps to prepare for large crowds and potential protest activity:

    • Bring signs, flags, flower pots or any other non-fixed objects inside. 
    • Keep the property well-lit when the business is closed. 
    • If security cameras are installed, make sure they are in working order and you have data storage available before leaving the property; windows, doors and any access points should be visible to the cameras.
    • Secure all commercial dumpsters.
