NEW YORK (AP) — Police in New York say they’ve deployed extra units to crowded areas of the city “out of an abundance of caution” in the wake of the attacks in Paris, France.
A New York Police Department statement released Friday stressed police have “no indication that the attack has any nexus to New York City.”
It said security units were sent to French government locations in the city immediately after the attacks.
Police have sent units to the New York embassies and consulates of countries experiencing attacks in the past.
The department’s intelligence division has detectives based in France. Police say those detectives are serving as liaison and will help police in Paris as needed.
Officials say several dozen people have been killed in Paris attacks at a theater, restaurant and elsewhere.
