ALBANY (AP) - Federal prosecutors from the U.S. northern border are gathered in Lake Placid this week to discuss cooperation and sharing information on issues that range from security to smuggling people and drugs.
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is scheduled to address the gathering today.
Prosecutors from the Northern District of New York, whose border region extends from the Vermont state line through Cayuga County along Lake Ontario, are meeting in the Adirondack village after that.
State police begin and end a six-vehicle motorcade bearing U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder through Saranac Lake today, on his way from the Adirondack Regional Airport in Lake Clear to Lake Placid, where he was to speak at noon at federal prosecutors’ conference on northern border issues.
