Additional Security As Terror Attack Anniversary Approaches

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut police are increasing security around the state’s transportation hubs ahead of the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

State police officials said Friday they will conduct high-visibility patrols of large crowd areas like airports and bus stations and critical infrastructure locations to deter attacks.

Police said there is no specific threat to Connecticut but the operation called `Iron Eagle’ is part of regionally increased security around the anniversary.

Lt. J. Paul Vance says the operation will have no additional costs to the police force and will redistribute forces to the target areas.

Vance says specially trained law-enforcement officials will be used in the operation that will continue indefinitely and which also includes local and federal officers.
