McKenna says he doesn't believe New Jersey residents are completely safe because you can't guarantee safety of people, but he does believe we are safer.

McKenna says security has been tightened at the state's ports, nuclear power plants, bridges and tunnels. Security has also been tightened at Newark Liberty International Airport. McKenna says we can't afford to get careless.

McKenna says one of the biggest challenges facing New Jersey from a security standpoint is just how many potential targets we have, including populated cities to major sporting events. He says in the end, Homeland Security is a shared responsibility.
