Gov. Christie talks security ahead of 9/11 anniversary

PRINCETON - Gov. Chris Christie addressed concerns about security in the Garden State this afternoon following a new terror threat ahead of the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

The governor said that the new threat is "nothing that should come to anybody as a surprise or cause panic across the state."

Christie urged people around New Jersey to go about their lives as normal, but said to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity.

Superintendent of State Police Col. Rick Fuentes says it will be all hands on deck this weekend.Troopers have spent the last three weeks meeting with business owners who sell items that can be used for terrorist activities. They reminded them what kind of suspicious activity to look for and to report it to authorities immediately. Christie says residents who see something unusual should call the law enforcement tip line at 866-4SAFE-NJ or local police.
