Cities across the United States are ramping up security measures to ensure a safe and enjoyable New Year’s Eve for millions of revelers amid heightened fears of a terror attack.
New York City police are promising a bigger security detail than ever before for this year’s New Year’s Eve festivities centered on Times Square.
Up to two million people are expected to flood the commercial center of the nation’s largest city tomorrow night.
As well, the city’s ‘ring of steel’ – surveillance cameras in high-traffic areas, inspired by the apparatus surrounding the City of London – will be used to assess unusual activity.
The stepped-up security is in response to an attempted bombing in a Times Square subway station walkway on December 11.
