Police Plan To Raise Security Again For Jewish High Holidays

| September 15, 2011

Security in the city remains tight following the anniversary of September 11th as police look forward to the High Holy days.

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said Tuesday that security will not be as severe, but will have to remain in place for some time until threats are entirely gone.

He said officers will still be routinely checking bags at subways throughout the city.

"We are making judgments literally on an hourly basis. You still see checkpoints in place, we are doing additional coverage in our transit system and other locations. Obviously it is less than it was on the weekend, but we'll continue to be vigilant at least for the near term," Kelly said.

The NYPD is also increasing protection in Jewish neighborhoods as Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur approach.

Increased foot patrols and counterterror teams will be patrolling those areas.
