Report: NYPD Steps Up Patrols at Media Offices

Thursday, 22 Jan 2015 02:59 PM

The NYPD has ramped up patrols outside "media companies" in New York City in the wake of the deadly terror attack on the Charlie Hebdo satirical weekly in Paris, according to a report by JimRomenesko.com, citing an email to Gawker employees.

Romenesko, who blogs about media stories, says that Gawker Media chief operating officer Scott Kidder sent out a warning memo to his employees shortly after noon on Thursday.

He quoted the email as saying: "I want to send a note to let you know that the NYPD has advised us that they're increasing patrols of media companies in light of some of the activity in Europe — and so you may see an increased police presence outside 210 Elizabeth Street.

"There is no specific (or general) threat against Gawker. And for the record, if we received any specific threat, we'd share that with you.

"We continue to evaluate our security, both in the current and new office. If you have any specific concerns, please feel free to speak to your department head or myself. Thanks, Scott."
