Times Square and a surrounding 200 block area will resemble a prison this evening.

Revelers who plan to attend the celebration of the New Year will be subjected to a “magnetometry check” and have their bags searched. There will be “weapons response teams,” horse-mounted police officers, undercover cops, bomb-sniffing dogs and police patrol boats. The Joint Terrorist Task force will be on hand.
COBRA teams will handle chemical, biological and radiological threats and will be pre-deployed to key areas. Manhole covers are sealed, barricades are set up to pen in the revelers and at least 500 security cameras are in place to scan the crowds, CBS New York reports.

“Our helicopters will be up in the air and checking the 200-block area around Times Square,” said New York police commissioner Ray Kelly.

A Joint Operations Center “will be activated, where we have representatives from units throughout the department and federal, state and local agencies. So you can get face-to-face coordination, which is very important aspect of what we do,” he said.

“On New Year’s Eve if you see something suspicious, there should be a police officer pretty much within arm’s reach,” Kelly explained.

“Look at your world or whatever activity you’re engaged in through the prism of September 11.”
