See Something, Say Something

This public awareness campaign was created to raise knowledge regarding criminal activity and possible terrorism-related crimes. The public should report any suspicious behavior and these types of situations immediately.

  • Unattended backpack left in a public space
  • Someone trying to break into a restricted area
  • Acquiring supplies:  When someone is purchasing, storing or stealing explosives, weapons or ammunition
  • Elicitation:  Anyone attempting to gain information about a place, person or operation
  • Test of security:  This is usually conducted by driving by a potential target, moving into sensitive areas and observing the responses of security and law enforcement 
  • Surveillance:  A target area that will most likely be observed during the planning phase

When reporting suspicious activity remember to give the most accurate information possible. Information reporting may include:

  • Brief description of the activity
  • Date, time and location of the activity
  • Physical identifiers of anyone you observe
  • Description of vehicles (i.e. license plate, make, model)
  • Information about where the people involved in suspicious activities may have gone
  • Your contact information (optional)
If something has already happened or you are concerned about something you have witnessed, contact the Arizona Counter Terrorism Information Center (ACTIC) at 1-877-2SAVEAZ (1-877-272-8329)
