Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade to have extra security after NYC terror attack

Posted: Updated:

Security will be stepped up this year for the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.

A heavy police presence will be at the parade following the terror attack in New York a few weeks ago, which killed eight people.

"You'll see at every intersection there will be more blocker cars and there will be sand-filled sanitation trucks. And this is the third year in a row we'll be using our critical response command cops... who are specifically assigned to counter terrorism duties," the NYC Police Commissioner said.

New York City's mayor also emphasized, there are no credible threats to the city right now.
