WASHINGTON - D.C. Police says they are "fully activated" in order to respond to demonstrations following the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade.
The full departmental activation will extend through the end of the third watch on Tuesday, June 28.
All members will be expected to work extended hours.
The Supreme Court has ended constitutional protections for abortion that had been in place nearly 50 years in a decision by its conservative majority to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Friday's outcome is expected to lead to abortion bans in roughly half the states.
MPD informed FOX 5 that no arrests were made during the protests on Friday.
