Beverly Hills business owners are being warned by police to board up their businesses the day prior to the Nov. 3 presidential election.
The Beverly Hills Police Department sent a mass text message to business owners, which informed them that the famed street of Rodeo drive will be shut down prior to the election. It also asked businesses to board up and not open for business.
The message read "FYI: BHPD strongly suggests that all Rodeo Drive businesses board up on Monday 11/2. All board ups must be completed by 11pm on Monday, 11/2. Rodeo Drive will be closed starting midnight on Monday, 11/2. From that moment on, there will be NO cars or pedestrians allowed on Rodeo Drive," according to the Daily Mail.
"Cement K-Rail will be placed at the following Rodeo intersections: S Santa Monica, Dayton, Brighton, Wilshire Blvd. They alleys Rodeo shares with Camden and Beverly Hills will be soft closed by Traffic Control Officers (TCOs). TCOs will allow alley access for medical patients to go into buildings where they have medical appointments, if those locations have alley access. If you have your medical office, please email your patients proof of their appointments, which they can show the TCOs.
"For the safety of the community and business patrons, no retail businesses should operate while boarded up and while Rodeo is under a hard closure."
In New York City, the NYPD is also training every day and deploying hundreds of extra cops as it braces for Election Day and its aftermath. This news all comes as law enforcement across the U.S.A are worried the results of the election will lead to mass riots.
