For law enforcement in Boston and at Logan Airport, today won’t be spent celebrating Osama Bin Laden’s death – the focus will be on heightened vigilance.

Massachusetts State Police and the Transportation Security Administration, a federal agency created in response to 9/11, have more people on duty at Logan today than usual, said Phil Orlandella, spokesman for Logan.

Two of the four aircraft hijacked by Bin Laden’s terrorists departed Logan on Sept. 11, 2001 -- American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175. Later that morning, the terrorists flew the hijacked aircraft into the World Trade Center in New York City.

Orlandella said there is no specific information suggesting that Logan is drawing the attention of terrorists. Instead, he said, the goal is assure the traveling public that they are safe at Logan and to remind everyone who works at the airport to report anything suspicious.
