MENDHAM - Gov. Chris Christie is pledging help to the people of Boston.

Christie said that although his administration is in touch with the FBI and other law enforcement agencies, citizens should remain vigilant in order to keep New Jersey safe.

"You can't ever have enough police or agents to patrol a state as big as this state," Christie said. "We all see things as we walk around our daily lives, and if you see something unusual, you know, don't be afraid to pick up the phone."

The governor urges residents to report concerns to 1-866-4-SAFE NJ.
