New York counter terrorism teams will be deployed to Hudson Valley shopping areas and train stations today to conduct random checks aimed at educating the public on how to deter and recognize suspicious activity during the holiday season.
The Counter Terrorism Action Teams (CTAT) will be at malls and train stations in Orange, Rockland and Sullivan counties today, and will be focusing on increasing the security of the shopping public during the holiday season.
Local law enforcement will tour the sites with CTAT agents to discuss the indicators of terrorist activities, and to distribute flyers promoting the "See Something, Say Something" campaign.
