NEW YORK — New York City police say they have tightened security at high-profile locations “out of an abundance of caution” following the deadly explosion in Manchester, England.
New York Police Department spokesman J. Peter Donald said in a statement Tuesday that New Yorkers may see “heavy weapons teams,” explosive-detection dogs and counterterrorism officers.
Authorities also are conducting random bag checks at New York City transit locations.
Donald says the NYPD Intelligence Bureau “continues to be in regular contact” with its partners overseas.
