REPORT SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY

Acts of terrorism are typically preceded by suspicious behaviors and activities that, if observed and reported, allow investigators the opportunity to assess the behavior or activity, determine if a crime has occurred or is imminent, and act within the confines of the law to prevent a crime or terrorist attack from occurring.

Countless lives have been saved, thanks to suspicious activity reports (SARs) that have been provided by private citizens and sworn public safety professionals. The confidentiality of those reporting and privacy of the subjects of such reports is always a prime concern of our partners at the Joint regional Intelligence Center.
