After Brussels Terror Attack, New York Police Increase Security Following Belgium Bombings

With at least two dozen people dead after a series of bombings by terrorists in Brussels, the New York Police Department said Tuesday more counterterrorism officers were being deployed across the city and that police officials were closely monitoring the situation.

New York police are also in contact with its “international partners,” as well as the FBI. An NYPD spokesman said on Twitter that the Counterterrorism Response Command, the Strategic Response Group and the Hercules Team, a heavily armed police unit, have been deployed throughout the city.

“These teams have been deployed to crowded areas and transit locations around the city out of an abundance of caution to provide police presence and public reassurance as we closely follow the developing situation overseas,” the NYPD said in a statement.
