The Louisville Metro Police Department has canceled all off days and vacation requests until further notice as the agency prepares for Attorney General Daniel Cameron's announcement in the Breonna Taylor case.

Sgt. Lamont Washington announced the decision in a Monday afternoon news release.

"The public may also see barriers being staged around downtown, which is another part of our preparations," Washington said in the statement.

Federal and other government buildings have been closed and some boarded up in downtown Louisville.

Interim Chief of Police Robert Schroeder has declared a state of emergency for LMPD.
