TRENTON, N.J. — New Jersey State Police troopers on alert after the deadly Paris attacks greeted football fans at the Giants-Patriots game in East Rutherford.

State Police Lt. Peter Velez tells the Asbury Park Press there is no credible threat but out of caution after the attacks police decided increase staffing for a more visible presence. The Giants are playing the Patriots at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford.

Velez says the game "should be the safest place to be."

Police spokesman Sgt. Jeff Flynn said Sunday the exact number of troopers is not available because of safety concerns.

Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police spokesman Joe Pentangelo also says the department is on heightened alert.

Officials say people should remain vigilant and report suspicious activities to police.
