Memo: NYPD Is Increasing Patrols Outside Media Companies


A Gawker memo informed employees on Thursday that the New York Police Department has increased its presence around media companies based in the city due to “the activity in Europe,” media blogger Jim Romenesko reported.

“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,” the memo read according to Romenesko, “and so you may see an increased police presence outside 210 Elizabeth Street.”

“There is no specific (or general) threat against Gawker,” the memo reportedly added.

It is unclear whether “activity in Europe” referred specifically to the recent terror attacks in Paris, France.
