FDLE Asks Citizens to Be Vigilant & Report Suspicious Activity

Screen Shot 2015-12-08 at 8.43.26 AMThe Florida Department of Law Enforcement is relaunching the “If You See Something, Say Something™” campaign after recent terror attacks. The goal of the campaign is to remind citizens to be vigilant and aware of of their surroundings at all times so that they can report suspicious behavior to law enforcement. The campaign was originally implemented by New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority in 2011. It is a simple and effective program to engage the public and key frontline employees to identify and report indicators of terrorism and terrorism-related crime to the proper law enforcement authorities. Examples of suspicious activity include things like: people drawing or measuring buildings for no known reason, strangers asking questions about building security procedures or people in secure areas where they are not supposed to be, or leaving behind briefcases, suitcases, backpacks or packages. The campaign was originally launched in 2011 and never ended but in light of the recent terrorist attacks officials want to encourage people to be on alert yet again. Suspicious activity can be reported to local authorities or by calling 1-855-FLA-SAFE (1-855-352-7233). It can also be reported online through FDLE’s website at www.fdle.state.fl.us.
