Cheshire Police say they're increasing the number of patrols of armed officers at different places and events across the county this weekend.
The force says it's in response to the increase in the UK terror threat level following Monday's attack in Manchester and is aimed at reassuring people.
It adds that it has also opened books of condolence for people to reflect as one of the victims of the attack was off-duty Cheshire Police officer Elaine McIver.

Journey times on the M6 through Staffordshire and Cheshire are expected to more than triple due to bank holiday traffic this afternoon, a traffic company says.
More than 15 million "leisure" car journeys are expected to be made over the weekend with road expected to be at their busiest between 13:00 and 20:00.
Traffic information company Inrix warned some journeys could take up to four times longer and flagged the M6 between junctions 15 and 19 as one of the busiest routes.
The RAC was expecting the busiest late May bank holiday on the roads in four years with "bumper-to-bumper" congestion.
