HV authorities on high alert in wake of bin Laden's death
Law enforcement officials in the Hudson Valley are on heightened alert a little more than one day after U.S. forces killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan.
Officials say it is due to the potential for revenge attacks in the wake of the death of al-Qaeda?s leader.
Chief Robert Van Cura, of the South Nyack and Grandview police departments, is also the co-chairman of the New York State?s Counterterrorism Zone 4. He says it will be keeping extra eyes on places such as the Tappan Zee Bridge and the Palisades Center Mall. He says as always, the public needs to help as well. Officials say they are not letting their guard down and are asking residents to be on the lookout for suspicious activity and report it to their local police departments.
