(FOX NEWS) – New York City Mayor Eric Adams, joined by NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell, hosted a briefing Monday regarding security preparations ahead of former President Donald Trump’s arraignment, stressing that as of midday Monday “there has been no specific, credible threats to our city at this time” and everyday life should continue as normal.

“Control yourselves,” Adams warned at City Hall, recognizing anticipated protests and the unique nature of the situation. “New York City is our home, not a playground for your misplaced anger. We are the safest large city in America because we respect the rule of law in New York City. And although we have no specific threats, people like Marjorie Taylor Greene, who is known to spread misinformation and hate speech, says she’s coming to town. While you in town be on your best behavior. As always, we will not allow violence or vandalism of any kind. And if one is caught participating in any act of violence, they will be arrested and held accountable no matter who you are.”

“As the mayor stated, there are no credible or specific threats to New York City at this time,” Sewell said. “New Yorkers may see an increased police presence in parts of the city and should anticipate intermittent road closures over the next few days, particularly in Manhattan. To avoid delays, I too urge everyone to use mass transit when possible.”
