Thanksgiving Day Parade to Receive Major Security Boosts Amid Terror Threats

An ISIS propaganda magazine made a call for their followers to attack the incoming Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade in New York, calling it an “excellent target.” In response, NYPD has boosted security along the parade routes and other major sections. Sand trucks and various other barricades will be utilized for the duration of the parade, and mass parking restrictions are already in place.

Around 3,000 police officers will be deployed with police dogs that are trained to search for chemical weapons. Below is a video highlighting the extensive security measures that will be taken this year to ensure complete safety for New Yorkers and Americans visiting the famous parade.
