Following Paris attacks, Manchester police, FBI work to step up security measures in Queen City

MANCHESTER – Following the brutal terror attacks in Paris Friday, cities around the U.S. are assessing their own security plans – including the Queen City.

During a swearing in ceremony for three new officers Monday, Manchester Police Chief Nick Willard told NH1 News that there has been talking with the FBI in Boston to beef up security measures.

Manchester police and law enforcement agencies are hosting a tabletop exercise Wednesday to answer the tough question.

“"If that happens here, how will we respond? What are our resources? And how effective are we going to be responding the way that we would, and the best way to do that is to constantly train. Constantly go through that mindset. What are we going to do in this situation,” said Chief Willard.

Willard said there is also a Manchester Police officer on the joint terrorism task force which allows them to assess intelligence in real time.

NH1 News will continue to follow the Manchester Police’s progress.
