Once again, the NYPD is assigning thousands of extra patrols in Times Square tonight for the New Year’s Eve festivities

Security in Times Square has become a major NYPD priority since 9/11, and especially after the botched car bombing there in 2010.

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly says there are no specific threats related to the celebration.
