City Releases Security Plan Ahead Of Independence Day


ESPECIALLY SOUTH OF PITTSBURGH, THE WAY THIS NEXT ROUND IS COMING IN. OTHERWISE, MUGGY CONDITIONS ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE NIGHT. IF YOU PLAN ON COMING DOWNTOWN FOR TOMORROW’S INDEPENDENCE DAY ACTIVITIES, YOU WILL DEFINITELY SEE EXTRA SECURITY IN PLACE. JOHN CHUMLEY SPOKE TO POLICE TO FIND OUT HOW IT WILL AFFECT YOU. WHAT IS THEIR PLAN? Reporter: THEY HAVE PLANS FOR ALL OVER THE AREA. THERE ARE A LOT OF ACTIVITIES PLANNED AT THE NORTH SHORE AND AS WELL AS UP ON MOUNT WASHINGTON. THERE IS PARTICULAR CONCERN OF THE CROWD THAT IS GOING TO GATHER UP THERE ON GRANDVIEW AVENUE. IN THIS TOWN, THIS IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT AND ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR VIEWING SPOTS AS A NEW TWIST TO IT THIS YEAR. A TWIST OF FENCING AND CAUTION TAPE, AND DO NOT CROSS SIGNS BLOCKING OFF THE EXITS OF GRANBY AVENUE BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN RULED UNSAFE BY THE DEPARTMENT OF MOBILITY AND INFRASTRUCTURE WHICH HE REALIZES WILL NOT CROWDS AWAY. YOU ARE TAKING POTENTIALLY MORE PEOPLE AND PUTTING THEM INTO A SMALL AREA. OF COURSE THEY WILL HAVE SOME PROBLEMS. EXTRA POLICE WILL BE ON HAND TO KEEP FOLKS OUT OF THE CLOSED AREAS. ANYONE WHO GOES OVER POLICE LINE TAPE OR FENCES THAT HAVE BEEN DIRECTED UP THERE WILL BE ASKED NICELY TO LEAVE AND IF THEY DO NOT THEY WILL BE CITED. BE NICE FIRST AND THEN ZERO TOLERANCE IS KIND OF THE WATCHWORD FOR THE SECURITY PLAN. A LOT OF TIMES PEOPLE LISTEN AND GO DO THEIR THINGS BUT IF THEY CONTINUE TO DO IT AND THE OFFICERS WITNESS IT THEY WILL TAKE SOME FORM OF ACTION. WE WANT EVERYONE TO HAVE A GOOD TIME IN PITTSBURGH. AND WE DO NOT HAVE ANY TOLERANCE FOR ANY DISOBEDIENCE. ON THE NORTH SHORE’S AND WASHINGTON AND AT THE POINT THERE WILL BE OFFICERS ON FOOT, HORSEBACK, HIGH VANTAGE POINTS AND ON VEHICLES. THERE IS NO THREAT TO THE WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA AREA. THEY HAVE NOT DECIDED WHETHER TO USE METAL DETECTORS BUT BAG CHECKS WILL BE DONE AT THE ENTRANCE STARTING AT TOMORROW NIGHT. WE ARE LOOKING FOR WEAPONS, EXPLOSIVES, OTHER ITEMS THAT WE WILL NOT GET INTO, BUT ANYTHING THAT COULD CAUSE HARM. AND THEY WILL HAVE THOSE BAG CHECKS RIGHT AT THE ENTRANCE AS YOU GO UNDER THE PORTAL BRIDGE. THERE WILL BE BAG CHECKS AND ALSO A BAG CHECK COMING OFF OF THE FORT BECAME PEDESTRIAN WALK WAY AND THE WALKWAY THAT COMES UP FROM THE WHARF AS WELL. A COUPLE OF OTHER THINGS. IN THE NEIGHBORHOODS, PITTSBURGH POLICE WILL BE LOOKING FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE SHOOTING OFF THE KIND OF FIREWORKS THAT ARE LEGAL NOW. BUT, YOU CANNOT USE THOSE WITHIN 150 FEET OF A BUILDING, WHICH IS MOST OF THE CITY AS WELL AS MOST OF THE NEIGHBORHOODS AS WELL AROUND THE AREA. IF THEY SEE YOU DOING THAT YOU COULD BE CITED AND THE SICK THAT HE WILL BE TIGHT ALL THE WAY AROUND. THE GOOD NEWS IS THE WAY THEY
