Security Increased in NYC After London Attack

The NYPD has stepped up security in New York City following a terror attack in London that left 7 people dead and dozens more injured.

The New York City Police Department said there are no specific or credible threats to the city.  However, the Critical Response Command has been deployed to key locations.  Mayor Bill de Blasio urged New Yorkers not to be alarmed by the increased police presence and offered his support for those in London.

Governor Andrew Cuomo also directed state law enforcement officials to increase security and patrols at high-profile locations.  That includes at the airports, bridges, tunnels and mass transit systems.

"My heart goes out to the victims of the shocking incidents in London. These apparent terrorist attacks are cowardly and senseless acts that go against everything we believe in, and a sad and sobering reminder of the threats we face today,” Cuomo said in a statement.
