LAX Police Chief Responds to European Travel Alert
Prompted by this weekend's travel alert issued by The State Department -- be vigilant, Americans! -- Chief George Centeno of the Los Angeles Airport Police said his office is on guard.
"Los Angeles Airport Police are aware of, and closely monitoring the reported terrorist threat to Europe," he said today. "We will continue to collaborate and work in close partnership with our law enforcement partners at LAX regarding this alert. We remain diligent in the strategic high visibility deployment of uniformed and plain clothes officers on foot and vehicle patrols, as well as, other security measures that are not visible to the public".
Centeno urged travelers to report any suspicious activity to LAX Police dispatch to 310-646-4268 or 1-877-A-THREAT/1-877-284-7328.
