Unconfimed Security Arangements Leaking Out

The articles about the RNC from the mainstream media are starting to come fast and furious as the convention draws near. We'll do our best at RNCWatch to filter out the new news from the old news.

This recent story in Newsday has some new information about security plans during this summer's convention. While protesters have been relatively open with the press, NYPD officials and other security planners have been remarkably tight lipped. Among the nuggets that can be gleaned from Newsday:

- Police are now trolling the Internet to monitor activists' organizing efforts - "applying techniques law enforcers are using against terrorism."

- "Security personnel - some from private firms - also will be stationed at hotels where GOP delegates are staying and outside of locations where parties are held for delegates and other convention-goers." State delegations are also planning on bringing their own security to NYC

- Up to 10,000 police are likely to be assigned to convention duty, with the entire Patrol Bureau working 12-hour shifts in the days leading up to the convention and during it. As a point of comparison, 4,000 officers were deployed on February 15, 2003.

- "it appears likely [again, this is UNCONFIRMED-- rncw] that the Police Department will establish a security perimeter from West 29th Street north to West 34th or West 35th streets, between Seventh and Eighth avenues. Pedestrians would be allowed to shop and motor vehicles would be able to use the streets, though West 31st and West 33rd streets, which border the Garden on the south and north, could be restricted and perhaps closed at times, and access will be slowed by security posts."
