NYPD increases security at several NYC locations in wake of London attack

According to CBS New York, the NYPD has increased security at a number of New York locations, including the United Nations, the British Consulate, City Hall, and Grand Central as a precaution due to  the terror attack in London.

“We immediately moved and redeployed some of our Critical Response Command personnel to UK locations, as well as other city agencies around the city,” NYPD Counterterrorism Chief Jim Waters said. “You’ll see a larger presence of the dogs at these locations as well as the CRC officers armed with the long guns.”

While the NYPD is being especially vigilant, they report that there is no information linking the London attack to New York City at present.
