T.J. Smith, spokesperson for the Baltimore Police, released a statement Sunday afternoon on security and communication after England suffered its third terrorist attack of the year:
It was just a few short weeks ago that we were talking about the tragedy in Manchester where a terrorist attack injured and killed scores of young people.
Last night, we once again witnessed what appears to be a terrorist attack.
As with any terrorist attack, domestic or foreign, we receive informational updates from our state and federal partners through our Joint Terrorism Task Force.
The Mayor and the Police Commissioner have spoken about this incident and they are being kept updated on any new developments that could affect our region. Certain security measures, sweeps, and evaluations have been put in place as we continue to fight global terrorism.
As always, our first line of defense is all of us; "If you see something, say something."
Our collective thoughts and prayers are with the people of London.
