Associated Press Updated: February 22, 2014 at 3:15 pm

BOSTON (AP) — The U.S.S. Constitution is preparing to conduct a security drill involving state and local law enforcement agencies together with emergency responders in the area of the Charlestown Navy Yard.

Officials with the world's oldest commissioned warship say Charlestown residents should not be alarmed by the presence of large numbers of law enforcement and emergency vehicles Tuesday morning.

The ship actively defended sea lanes against global threats from 1797 to 1855. It is now a featured destination on Boston's Freedom Trail, with her crew of U.S. Navy Sailors educating its 500,000 visitors about the ship's history and the importance of naval supremacy.
