Wake County To Increase Patrols In Muslim Communities

Posted September 21, 2001 3:19 a.m. EDT

— In response to residents' concerns about safety, the Wake County Sheriff's Department has stepped up patrols in Raleigh's Islamic communities.

The action follows the threat of hate crimes against Muslims in the wake of last week's terrorist attacks.

The increased patrols will center around the Islamic Mosque and the Al-Iman Islamic School.
