Tip of the Week:
The “If You See Something, Say Something®” campaign is a national campaign that raises public awareness of the importance of reporting suspicious activity to state and local law enforcement.
Be aware of your surroundings and report examples like the following:
Unusual items or situations such as a vehicle is parked in an odd location, package/luggage that is unattended, a window/door is open that is usually closed, or other out-of-the-ordinary situations;
A person eliciting information or questioning individuals at a level beyond curiosity about a building’s purpose, operations, security procedures, and/or personnel, shift changes, etc.;
Someone observing or surveilling, paying unusual attention to facilities or buildings beyond a casual or professional interest. This includes extended loitering without explanation (particularly in concealed locations); unusual, repeated, and/or prolonged observation of a building (e.g., with binoculars or video camera); taking notes or measurements; counting paces; sketching floor plans, etc. Informed, alert communities play an integral role in keeping us safe.
