New York City police say they’ve stepped up security after an attack on a Paris newspaper killed 12.

The NYPD’s deputy commissioner for intelligence and counterterrorism says the department has a detective stationed in Paris and is closely monitoring the situation. John Miller also says the NYPD is putting out a cadre of heavily-armed officers in highly visible locations.

Police Commissioner William Bratton said Wednesday there is no credible threat against New York.

The masked gunmen stormed the Paris offices of a weekly newspaper that had caricatured the Prophet Muhammad.

Mayor Bill de Blasio called Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo to offer his condolences and to express New York City’s support for the people of Paris.
