LI ramps up terrorism prevention efforts
Following last weekend's foiled bombing at Times Square, Long Island officials say they're stepping up efforts to keep residents safe.
Nassau Police Commissioner Lawrence Mulvey says his department communicates daily with the FBI and the military. In addition, police have equipped patrol cars with the latest technology to give them real-time intelligence.
Nassau and Suffolk police say shopping malls, sports arenas and even local beaches are potential terrorist targets.
Officials are also concerned that terrorists who want to attack New York City may do their planning in the suburbs. Because of that, officials say they're in constant contact with places that distribute chemicals such as chlorine and propane.
