BOSTON (WWLP/AP) – Additional police officers were deployed to airports, Tuesday night, throughout the country after an attack at an airport in Istanbul, Turkey.

According to Dave Procopio, from the Massachusetts State Police Media Relations, a “robust and multi-layered security operation” has been placed at Boston Logan International Airport.

“Operation includes patrol and tactical police assets that are visible to airport travelers and visitors, as well strategic assets that are not visible to the general public,” Procopio said.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey also announced on Tuesday that travelers should expect to see officers with tactical weapons patrolling at New York’s John F. Kennedy and LaGuardia airports and at New Jersey’s Newark International Airport.

Port Authority and Massachusetts State Police officials said they were continuing to monitor the situation in Turkey alongside federal and local officials, including the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force.
