Daily Preparedness Tip: If You See Something, Say Something
A quick reminder that if you see something unusual/inexplicable/possibly something pointing to crime or terrorism, say something (ie: alert law enforcement so they can check it out). I learned today that our local area has a counter terrorism task force which relies on tips from the public (in the form of a SAR--suspicious activity report) to provide information on criminal activity/possible terrorism activity which law enforcement then follows up on. Apparently tips through this service have alerted law enforcement to potential school shooter events which were able to be pre-empted before any damage was done. If your area doesn't have such a system, you can always report tips to the FBI or call 311/911.
