If You See Something, Say SomethingReport Suspicious Activity
Suspicious activity is any observed behavior that could indicated terrorism or terrorism-related crime. This includes, but not limited to:
Unusual items or situations: A vehicle is parked in an odd location, a package / luggage is unattended, a window / door is open that is usually closed, or other out-of-the-ordinary situations occur.
Eliciting information: A person questions individuals at a level beyond curiosity about a building's purpose, operations, security procedures and / or personnel, shift changes, etc.
Observation / surveillance: Someone pays 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.
Some of these activities could be innocent - it's up to law enforcement to determine whether the behavior warrants investigation. The activities above are not all-inclusive, but have been compiled based on studies of per-operational aspects of both successful and thwarted terrorist events over several years.
Dial 9-1-1 in case of an emergency.
