New York is beefing up security for the World Trade Center site ahead of the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

The lower Manhattan force will eventually rise to 670 – larger than any of the 76 precincts in the five boroughs – and entire police departments in other cities across the country.

The thousands of people expected to visit the Sept. 11 memorial after it opens this fall will endure airport-style screening and be watched by closed-circuit cameras as part of the attack site opens publicly for the first time since 2001.

Securing the World Trade Center site – which also has a skyscraper rising above the skyline – from terror attacks has been one of law enforcement’s most pressing problems long before the al-Qaeda attack that destroyed the towers.

In 1993, Islamic extremists exploded a rented van rigged with fertiliser bomb in a trade centre parking garage, killing six people and injuring more than 1,000 others. And in 2006, authorities alleged a Lebanese man loyal to Osama bin Laden plotted to flood the site and the rest of lower Manhattan by exploding backpacks in commuter train tunnels under the Hudson River.
