Cleveland Police, Division of Fire and Emergency Medical Services addressed safety and security over Fourth of July weekend Friday.

The briefing took place at 1 p.m.  

The meeting is one of many being held across the country as law enforcement officers remain on high alert this weekend following an increased threat of a terror attack.

In fact, according to officials, special Transportation Security Administration (TSA) teams are being assigned to large airline hubs and investigators are watching potential suspects.

In recent weeks, law enforcement agents have made dozens of arrests of alleged ISIS sympathizers across the country. This year, there have already been 24 ISIS-linked plots against Western targets, up from only 19 last year.
