Interim Chief of Police Robert Schroeder of the Louisville Metro Police Department has declared a state of emergency for all members of law enforcement in advance of Attorney General Daniel Cameron's announcement in the Breonna Taylor case.

The announcement will reveal whether or not a grand jury has decided if the officers involved in her death will face criminal charges. The state of emergency was issued over the concern that there would be more civil unrest in the wake of that grand jury verdict.

"Cameron has not released a timetable for the announcement," WDRB reported. "However, the federal courthouse downtown, The Gene Snyder U.S. Courthouse & Customhouse, is closed this week in anticipation of a decision in the case."

High risk targets in Louisville have been identified by Tom Moore, the facilities manager of the GSA, and they include the federal buildings and immigration enforcement buildings.

Moore added that the General Services Administration has already begun taking proactive steps to guard the buildings against demonstrators.

LMPD took to Twitter Tuesday morning, tweeting updated traffic changes for the upcoming week. This includes barricades to block car traffic, parking restrictions, and even restrictions on foot traffic.

The notice continued: "This declaration specifically includes Article 8 - Lodge Business, Article 15 - Health and Safety, Article 19 - Transfer Rights, Article 27 - Overtime, and Article 30 - Paid and Unpaid Leaves of the Police Officers and Sergeants and Captains and Lieutenants Collective Bargaining Agreements with the River City Fraternal Order of Police Lodge No. 614."

A modification of the Memorandum was sent out shortly after, which read: "As we prepare for Attorney General Daniel Cameron's announcement in the Breonna Taylor case, effective immediately, all off-days are hereby cancelled and vacation requests that have not already been submitted and approved are cancelled until further notice. No further off-day or vacation requests will be approved."

Taylor was killed by law enforcement in Louisville, Kent. earlier this year when they entered the home where she was sleeping, late in the evening under the direction of a "no-knock warrant."

It was only when they attempted to enter her home, without identifying themselves, that Taylor's boyfriend opened fire on the officers, believing he was the victim of a home invasion.

As a result, the officers returned fire, killing Taylor as she slept.
