Posted at 5:45 PM, Oct 28, 2014

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is increasing its presence at various federal government buildings throughout the nation, according to an agency news release distributed Tuesday. 

The actions are being taken due to "continued public calls by terrorist organizations for attacks" and the attacks on personnel in Canada and the United States, according to the release. 

The release did not specify which buildings. 

"The precise actions we are taking and the precise locations at which we will enhance security is law-enforcement sensitive, will vary and shift from location to location, and will be continually re-evaluated," the statement read.
