Detectives are investigating the source of a message that reads “kill all cops,” spray-painted on a utility pole near the Smith Haven Mall. The message was discovered in Smithtown on the same day three police officers were gunned down in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Police say they received a 911 call on Sunday reporting the graffiti at the corner of Middle County and Parsnip Pond roads.

The department released a statement following the attack on law enforcement in Baton Rouge. It reads in part:

“The Suffolk County Police Department is in close contact with our law enforcement partners, including the FBI, receiving intelligence and updates on this attack. Modifications to our posture will be implemented as necessary. “

The police department is asking the public to be vigilant and aware, and to report any suspicious activity to law.
