CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati and Norwood police are on alert after Thursday night's police shootings in Dallas.  

Five officers were killed and seven others injured when snipers target police at the end of a protest, police said.

The Cincinnati Police Department said they will be doubling up in every car through the weekend. They will reevaluate the way they operate after Monday, according to CPD spokeswoman Tiffany Hardy. 

No other specifics were given.

Norwood police said all patrols will consist of two officers riding as partners for an indefinite period of time.  

While it will not decrease the amount of patrol cars on the street, Norwood police are asking for patience should any delays occur.
