The Los Angeles International Airport Police Department (LAXPD) has stepped up security for U.S. Service personnel following Wednesday's attack on a U.S. Air Force bus at Germany's Frankfurt Airport.

"LAAFB in El Segundo is the only active duty base in the Los Angeles area and its personnel regularly pass through LAX," noted Marshall McClain, president of the Los Angeles Airport Peace Officers Association (LAAPOA).
