Law Enforcement watching developments in Boston carefully
You might not have heard anything from local officials since the attacks in Boston on Monday, but they are hard at working trying to protect you from a similar attack here in Houston.
Dennis Storemski is the Director of the Mayor's Office of Public Safety and Homeland Security, and tells KTRH there's a reason they've been quiet since Monday.
“We’re keeping abreast of things, but none of it is the kind of thing that we would report to the public,” Storemski said.
With events like the Houston International Festival coming up this weekend, Storemski says his people are hard at work.
“It’s somewhat business as usual, but when an event like this occurs our position is to have more awareness and more vigilance,” Storemski explained.
Storemski says his people are not taking their foot off the gas pedal.
“We always have major concerns. That’s what we do. But at the same time we don’t want the public to be fearful,” Storemski explained.
And they aren't working alone. Shauna Dunlap of FBI Houston told KTRH they are involved too.
“We are coordinating with state, local and other federal law enforcement authorities. We are working shoulder to shoulder to share information,” Dunlap explained.
Dunlap says you can help them out.
“If you see something, say something. Any suspicious activity should always be reported,” Dunlap said.
Storemski says there are other ways to help out other than calling 911.
