DENVER -- As Denver braces for tomorrow's start of the Democratic National Convention, a multi-block perimeter around the convention site is under a heavy blanket of security. Heavily armed police are on foot, on bikes, in armored trucks, in unmarked cruisers, and even driving a pimped-out golf cart borrowed from the Los Angeles police.

Jersey barriers and metal gates are everywhere. Major streets are closed. Helicopters buzz constantly overhead. Major stations in the city's light-rail system are scheduled to be closed from tonight through the end of the convention.

As of mid-afternoon, police had reported few problems and no major arrests.

Anti-convention activists have loosely organized events planned all week.
