LAPD, FBI Increase New Year’s Eve Patrols In Wake Of Terror Threat

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Security will be beefed-up at several New Year’s Eve events across Southern California Thursday in response to an uncorroborated, non-specific terrorism threat.

According to federal officials, the threat has been made against Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and New York.

The FBI released a statement that reads in part: “While the FBI and Department of Homeland Security are not aware of any specific, credible threats to the homeland, we continue to take proactive steps to ensure personnel and resources are in place to ensure the safety and security of our communities. We remind the public to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious activities which could represent a threat to the public safety.”

Authorities here in Southern California say the threat will not affect beefed-up New Year’s Eve patrols.
