There never are any "specific threats." There weren't any before 9/11, or the WTC's attack before that.

Terrorist don't "telegraph" their attacks....they just do it. The reason why the politicians add that "no specific threat" stuff is to give the impression that they are on top of everything, when they know themselves they are not.

With that said, I'm sure that many special NYPD units will be holding over a lot of their manpower for the day tour tomorrow, and probably for the rest of the week. This time, it's serious stuff.

Yes.. escalation in the Middle east war. Iran attacked Israel tonight with drones, ballistic missiles and cruise missiles. This is unprecedented. Still going on now. USA air force involved in shooting down at least a dozen targets.

News sources reported that the Northeast was on increased alert for terroristic acts.

I agree heightened alert will probably continue now in New York City and other large cities around the country.

Don't expect to hear too much on the radios today...or at all...as it relates to what's going on, except for an increase of reports of "suspicious packages" and "unattended bags." Most of the information about what's going on will be distributed at roll calls at the beginning of the tour.

But if "something" happens, there will be a lot to be heard.
