Post-bin Laden, security changes at your federal building

The death of Osama bin Laden is bringing an elevated level of security to your agency to counter possible retaliatory actions.
You could see more in depth identification checks or more canines in your office building, said Wendell Shingler, former director of the Federal Protective Service, which guards federal office buildings and facilities.
But federal employees won't see all of the enhanced security. Some FPS officers may patrol dressed as tourists or visitors "so they're getter able to see the things around the federal facilities and better prepared to react," Shingler said.
However, law enforcement officials cannot be everywhere all the time, he said.
"If you do see suspicious activity where somebody is looking nervous or constantly looking around to see who's watching them, that's the kind of thing (law enforcement) would want you to report and be aware of," Shingler said.
Shingler added that federal employees should know fire escapes and escape routes from their office building.
"Be prepared and then you can help those who are helping us," he said.
