FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 2, 2011

Statement from Jonathon Monken, State Homeland Security Advisor, On the Death of Osama bin Laden

As the State Homeland Security Advisor to Governor Quinn, I have been in contact with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security regarding the death of Osama bin Laden.  At this time, we are working closely with the State Terrorism and Intelligence Center (STIC) as intelligence experts there collect and disseminate information to our state and local law enforcement partners regarding this event.  I am also in close communications with the Illinois State Police.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has indicated that it does not intend to issue a National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) at this time.  While our country remains at a heightened state of vigilance, we do not want the public to be alarmed.  As always, it is important for people to remain vigilant, be aware of situations taking place around them and report anything that appears suspicious to local law enforcement agencies.
