CINCINNATI - The Flying Pig Marathon took place in Cincinnati Sunday.
Law officials said there were more security assets in place for the event than there is when the president is in town.
9 On Your Side reporter Jay Warren spoke with Cincinnati Police Department Captain Paul Broxterman about security precautions in this year's marathon following the tragedy at the Boston Marathon just a few weeks ago.
"We have various dogs out on the course and we're just looking for anything that's out of the ordinary," Broxterman said.
Security in the intersection of Hyde Park Square was particularly tight Sunday morning. Members of the Cincinnati Police SWAT team patrolled the sidewalk while bomb technicians and K-9 units from the Hamilton County's Sheriff's Office secured the area.
"We are more aware than ever of any suspicious packages that may be around so I think we have it pretty well covered," Broxterman said.
