Law Enforcement Ready For Election-Related Flare-Ups
Days before a hotly contested election, law enforcement officials in the Berkshires and across the state are on the alert for any signs of disruption at the polls Tuesday.
Berkshire District Attorney Andrea Harrington on Friday said her office is working with the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office, local law enforcement and local elections officials to ensure a safe and orderly Election Day.
She has assigned a lead prosecutor to work with Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey’s Election Protection Task Force to field reports of voter intimidation, interference or disorderly conduct at the polls.
“There have been no credible threats and no information that there will be any problems in Berkshire County,” Harrington told The Eagle on Friday. “But, we are working with law enforcement to anticipate what could arise so we can prepare.”
