Security increased at Jackson Browne concert in Orlando after threat

Browne performs Tuesday at Dr. Phillips Center

ORLANDO, Fla. - Orlando police are increasing security at a Jackson Browne concert following a possible threat left on banners at an Indiana church.

Orlando police said in a statement that they've increased security for Tuesday night's concert at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.

 "OPD is aware of this incident and has been in communication with police in West Lafayette, Indiana. We are aware that there is a planned Jackson Browne concert Jan. 23 at the Dr. Phillips Center and there will be an increased security presence at the event. As always, we rely on our residents and visitors to be our eyes and ears in the community. If you see something that seems suspicious, notify police and we will check into it," police said in a statement.

The banners, left at the Unitarian Universalist Church in West Lafayette, Indiana, on Sunday, included misspellings and vulgarities. One sign made reference to the Oct. 1 mass shooting in Las Vegas, included Browne's name and mentioned Orlando. The church had hosted a weekend protest to mark the one-year anniversary of President Donald Trump's inauguration.

Orlando police said they are stepping up security measures just in case, but have not found the person responsible for the sign.

A representative with Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center said the center uses screening procedures and checks attendees' bags. 

A statement released by the center said: 

"The safety and security of our guests, colleagues and artists is our highest priority. We were made aware of the situation Sunday night and have been working closely with law enforcement to ensure a safe, secure environment for the concert. As is our policy, we request you contact the Orlando Police Department for additional information and updates."
