Law Officers Urged to Remain on Alert

January 04, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

The government has called on law enforcement personnel across the nation to remain vigilant against domestic terrorism until March 11, extending a standing alert through the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

The FBI informed 18,000 law enforcement agencies that it was extending the alert issued publicly Dec. 3 by homeland security chief Thomas J. Ridge, FBI and White House officials said.

The new advisory came without a public announcement from the Bush administration.

Homeland Security spokesman Gordon Johndroe said the new alert was "based on the continuing high level of generalized threat information."
