Tucson Police Chief Roberto Villaseñor says the City of Tucson has been in talks with the police department to beef up security at City Hall for months.
There has also been talk about providing mayoral security and beefing up security at local ward offices at the request of council members.
Villaseñor says an incident on Wednesday involving as suspicious package prompted them to move fast and add an additional Tucson Police officer to protect City Hall, and the mayor's office.
Those who walk into City Hall today will see two TPD officers and a private security guard in the building, although staff stress all of this is temporary.
