WASHINGTON — Leaders of the nation’s largest police organizations said they were briefed by the FBI after the killing of Osama bin Laden and told there appeared to be no immediate threats or active terrorist plots, USA Today reported.
The paper reported that the briefing came after federal officials were warned to be on guard for any acts of retaliation.
USA Today reported that Philly Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey, president of the Major City Chiefs Association, said the FBI provided the briefing last week. Other organizations in attendance included the International Association of Chiefs of Police and the National Sheriffs Association.
Meanwhile, various media organizations reported that materials seized at the bin Laden compound showed that he was encouraging attacks on smaller cities in the U.S.
