Security in Hudson Valley Increases After NYC Terror Attack
After the terror attack in Manhattan this week, it looks like security in the Hudson Valley is ramping up. Particularly on public transportation like trains, where people are likely to see a heavier police presence than usual.
Some Hudson Valley police officers have been dispatched to New York City to assist the NYPD, and according to Westchester's Rob Astorino, they'll stay there as long as needed. Many of the officers have already received extensive counter-terrorism training, which was implemented following the September 11th attacks.
High-profile locations all around the state are likely going to see a significant increase in security, and Governor Cuomo says that includes airports, bridges, tunnels, and mass transit systems.
It's a scary time to be sure, but it is reassuring that New York is reacting to it swiftly with the hope that it won't happen again.
