The Dept of Homeland Security is reportedly increasing security at federal buildings across the country.

The department has not detailed any specific threats but it says this is largely a precautionary move.

In a statement, DHS said, “The precise actions we are taking and the precise locations at which we will enhance security is law-enforcement sensitive, will vary and shift from location to location, and will be continually re-evaluated.”

“The reasons for this action are self-evident: the continued public calls by terrorist organizations for attacks on the homeland and elsewhere, including against law enforcement and other government officials, and the acts of violence targeted at government personnel and installations in Canada and elsewhere recently,” the statement continues.
