NJ beefs up security for the Republican National Convention
With the Republican National Convention set to begin Monday, New Jersey's rescue workers are standing by as both New Jersey and New York are on heightened terror alert. The Holland Tunnel is just one of several crossings that will be heavily guarded beginning this weekend. The Port Authority will begin inspecting and scanning vehicles for radiation and state officials say recent terrorist activity overseas has them concerned. Officials are particularly worried about a biological or chemical attack at the Republican National Convention. Rescue workers say they are ready to deploy emergency equipment at a moments notice. Workers from the New Jersey Department of Health are setting up a command center outside of its headquarters in Trenton. The state police are running all emergency operations out of their headquarters in Ewing.
