Community Advisory: BPD Continues to Monitor Incident in New York City

The Boston Police Department sends our sympathies and prayers to all those impacted by the senseless attack today in New York City.  We commend the work of the NYPD officer who bravely confronted the suspect and stopped further harm. 

The Boston Police Department remains in close contact with our local and federal law enforcement partners in New York and while there is no known threat to the Boston area, the Department is reminding officers to be extra vigilant as they go about their patrols this evening paying particular attention to areas that tend to attract a large crowd. With Halloween upon us, we are also reminding parents and neighbors to be aware of their surroundings and if you see something say something.
