YAPHANK - Police say they've learned important lessons from the Boston Marathon bombing probe.

Suffolk police say they kept a close eye on events in Boston over the last week, from the initial explosions to the manhunt to the apprehension of the alleged bombers. The Suffolk County Police Department says it is using more social media and video camera footage in its investigations, similar to the way law enforcement officials turned to those tools in the Boston probe.

Security and terrorism experts say the Boston Marathon bombings will affect law enforcement policies for years to come.
