Arizona officials beef up security, but no threats

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) -- Law enforcement officials across Arizona are on heightened alert following the death of Osama bin Laden, but they report no information about any specific terrorism threat.

Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon said Monday the public will see more police at city buildings, places of worship, light rail trains and at Sky Harbor International Airport.

Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman Capt. Steve Harrison says federal officials have not told the Arizona Counter Terrorism Information Center of any specific threats. But with Sunday's death of bin Laden he said all the state's law enforcement agencies are on guard.

Major military bases have also slightly increased their security levels. A spokesman for the Marine Corps Air Station in Yuma says the base is checking visitors to the base more closely.
