For the past two years, the NYPD has been working to prevent terrorists from using vehicles as weapons, similar to what happened in lower manhattan on Halloween. As part of the training, officers would visit local rental businesses to help teach owners how to recognize suspicious activity. The training began after an ISIS publication mentioned New York's Thanksgiving Day Parade as a possible target for a vehicle attack roughly two years ago and it continued after similar attacks occurred in Europe. John Miller, New York Police Department deputy commissioner for intelligence and counterterrorism, the NYPD visited over 148 truck rental locations. Police are still investigating the Tuesday terror attack that left 8 people dead.
