Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and Acting Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter announced today that in light of today’s tragic terror attack that took place in London, the Nassau County Police Department (NCPD) is intensifying police patrols throughout local communities and has assigned officers from the NCPD’s Bureau of Special Operation and Criminal Intelligence Response Team to patrol local malls, areas of large gatherings and critical infrastructure.
“I extend my deepest sympathies to the victims of the London terror attack and their families,” said County Executive Mangano. “While there is no specific threat to Nassau County, we must all remain vigilant in the fight against terror as everyone can help be the eyes and ears for law enforcement. If you See Something, Say Something. Dial 911.”
NCPD Officers have been trained extensively to protect residents and they have been issued ballistic helmets and vests for their patrol cars. The NCPD’s Intelligence Unit continues to work around the clock in conjunction with the Joint Terrorism Task Force to provide officers with counter-terrorism bulletins.
