MCLB Albany increases security for 9/11

As the 10th anniversary of the 9-11 attacks approaches, the security level at Marine Corps Logistics Base and other military installations around the country has been increased.

M-C-L-B got the order late Tuesday night to increase their Force Protection Condition from Alpha, the lowest security level, to Bravo.

Base officials say anyone coming on the base should be prepared for an I-D check, random vehicle checks, and possible personal inspections.

MCLB Albany Public Information Officer Lt. Kyle Thomas said "People need to know they are not being profiled. This is part of the new Force Protection Condition that we have. The reason being, there has been no indication of a threat."

All base employees and visitors are urged to arrive early to deal with the increased security measures.

The Security Status at Moody Air Force Base has increased as well.  So expect delays entering that base too.
