CHICAGO — Chicago Police are increasing patrols at Chicago's Christkindlmarket after a Monday attack at a similar market in Berlin killed at least nine people.
Though Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said there "is no threat to the city or the greater area," he said the city would add foot and bike patrols to the popular market at Daley Plaza, which is open through Christmas Eve.
At least nine people died and 50 others were injured in the attack in Berlin.
Here's the statement:
The Chicago Police Department is closely monitoring events in Berlin and we are in regular communication with our federal and international partners. While there is no threat to the city or the greater area, CPD will be adding police resources to Daley Plaza including additional foot and bike patrols and specialized units. We continue to work closely with the Cook County Sheriff's Office and the Office of Emergency Management and Communications as well as with federal partners to ensure an optimal level of public safety throughout the holiday season. As always, we encourage individuals who observe any suspicious or questionable activity to call 911 or report it to your closest police officer.
