STATE – Law enforcement officials are maintaining a state of heightened vigilance following the death of Osama bin Laden, particularly around New Jersey’s transportation hubs. Officials note that there have been no specific threats made.
“The death of Bin Laden does not mean the death of terrorism,” said Colonel Rick Fuentes, superintendent of the New Jersey State Police. “Though the nation feels a sense of victory and justice, everyone in the law enforcement and intelligence community remains vigilant for terrorist retaliatory acts. The public should maintain the same attitude.”
“Though there are no specific threats, the public should not be alarmed to see an increased uniformed presence at some public locations including key transportation hubs,” said Acting Lieutenant Stephen Jones of the State Police Public Information Office.
NJ Transit urged customers who notice any suspicious activity or unattended packages at stations, aboard trains or buses, or near transit facilities to call 1-888-TIPS-NJT or notify a NJ Transit police officer. All calls are investigated, and all information is confidential.
