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.
