Increased security at Ft. Jackson
May 2, 2011 11:45:00 AM - thestate.com
Motorists around Fort Jackson should allow extra time for entrance onto the military base today as heightened security measures remain in effect from Sunday. The fort raised its threat level up one notch to the second of five levels after Sunday's death of long-sought international terrorist Osama Bin Laden.
The level was raised because of national military activity and is "not a cause for concern," spokesman Pat Jones said.
Anyone witnessing suspicious activities around the base should call the military police at (803) 751-3113.
