Malloy: Police to have increased rail, airport presence

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy announced that he has ordered increased state police presence along Metro North and Amtrak rail lines as well as at Bradley International Airport.
“The health and safety of our citizens is my number one priority,” Malloy said in a statement released by his office yesterday. “With the current events overseas and out of an abundance of caution, I am ordering an increased state police presence along our rail lines and at Bradley Airport,” Malloy said. “But let me be clear, there is no credible threat against the State of Connecticut at this time and these measures are precautionary in nature.”
Malloy also asked residents to be aware of their surroundings and to call the state Homeland Security Tips Line at 1-866-HLS-TIPS if they see anything “out of the ordinary.”  For any immediate threat, the statement advised residents to call 9-1-1.
