Federal, state and local law enforcement across the United States and at U.S. military bases across the globe are boosting security measures throughout the Fourth of July holiday weekend. The FBI, Department of Homeland Security and National Counterterrorism Center said in a bulletin to agencies across the nation that there were no specific active plots, but it did caution that extremists could launch Independence Day-targeted attacks.

"It's no secret that American patriot celebrations are targets," Boise Police Chief Bill Bones told a gathering of the Boise City Club June 30. But Bones was quick to add, "There is no threat to the city of Boise."

Bones said he expected nearly all of his department to be working through the holiday weekend.

"It's the Fourth of July. It's Saturday. It's a very busy day for us. ... Yes, we will have extra resources," said Bone. "We're pretty much going to have all of our resources out over the holiday."
