MIDTOWN — NYPD officials said Tuesday they do not see any “specific, credible threat” to New York City following a suspected terrorism attack at a holiday market in Berlin.
NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence and Counterterrorism John Miller said police deployed additional security to holiday markets, including critical response teams, directly following the Monday attacks.
“[We] spend very little time worrying and an awful lot of time planning,” Millers said oduring an appearance on CBS This Morning on Tuesday.
Counterterrorism officials have also built relationships with truck rental agencies, teaching them how to spot “indicators of suspicious” activities following the Nice, France attack during the summer.
Miller added while speaking on MSNBC in a second interview that terrorists are now less inclined to go after buildings and are trying to unleash "maximum lethality with attacks that are low cost, low tech and high impact."
“We continue to monitor these events for any potential impact they may have for New York City,” the NYPD said in a statement Monday evening. “Help keep New York City safe. Remember, if you see something, say something.”
