The public safety department at D/FW Airport has increased security around the airport in the wake of the heightened terror threat status in the United Kingdom, according to a news release sent out Saturday by David Magana, manager of public affairs.
The rest of the release reads as follows:
Because the United States remains at a Level Orange alert status, security is always high around the Airport.
Today, D/FW has placed additional officers and canine units on patrol in the terminals, parking garages and roadways in order to establish a higher level of visibility and vigilance.
The D/FW DPS is also maintaining close contact with federal agencies including the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI in an ongoing assessment of the situation overseas and its potential impact domestically.
