Chicago cops keeping eye on religious institutions

| May 2, 2011

Chicago police say they are keeping an eye on religious institutions as a precaution in the wake of Osama bin Laden's death at the hands of U.S. special forces.

The department has not issued a heightened alert, but officers are paying closer attention to mosques and synagogues, particularly in the Rogers Park and West Rogers Park neighborhoods, areas that have large Jewish and Muslim communities, officials said this morning.

The actions are being taken as a precaution and "there is no known terrorist threat in the city of Chicago," said Roderick Drew, spokesman for the Chicago Office of Emergency Management and Communications.

Some Chicago synagogues said they're not enhancing security because they're always on high alert.
