Q&A: FBI warns of Halloween threats

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Eyewitness News Analyst Lt. Gen. Reginald Centracchio joined us Wednesday to discuss a possible plot to attack police officers on Halloween.

The FBI is issuing a warning to police around the country, saying an anarchist group called the National Liberation Front may be planning a so-called “Halloween revolt,” according to a report from the New York Post.

Centracchio said officers can prevent something from happening through general awareness and keeping an eye out for potential threats, such as adults disguising themselves in children’s costumes.

The general also discussed the Rhode Island State Police Fusion Center, which will be used to get important information to officers.
