Examples of “something” to tell Law Enforcement

By | Safety Tips

With 4th of July celebrations all this week, & other mass gatherings year round, I wanted to share some examples of the “something” that if you see, you should contact law enforcement:

Individuals wearing clothes clearly inconsistent with the weather and or surroundings

Packages, backpacks, unusual devices such as crockpots left unattended in public places

Someone placing an object down and walking away especially at outdoor special events such as parades

Unusual or alarming posts on social media expressing disdain toward the country, democracy, law enforcement/military or hate filled comments about the US involvement in other countries

Unsettling comments about allegiance with any form of Islamic radicalism’s way of life

Vehicles parked out of place or having been parked for extended periods of time

👉Remember the more eyes Law Enforcement have, the safer our national community is!!
