New York City police are beefing up security for Macy's Day Parade


Security will be heightened at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York today, in the wake of last month's terror attack that killed 8 people.

Thousands of officers will be on patrol and entrances to the parade route will be barricaded off.

Today, there will be armed officers walking the crowds as well as bomb-sniffing dogs.

Sharp shooters will also be on rooftops.

If the police presence isn't enough, security crews will also be monitoring the crowds.

"There's probably not a spot in New York City that there isn't some sort of camera that can be focused on you,” says Terence Monahan, Chief of Patrol for NYPD.

Security officials say there are no credible or specific threats against New York City or the parade.
