Public safety is everyone’s responsibility. Have fun, but be vigilant, too. If you see something – something you know is out of place, or someone’s behavior doesn’t seem quite right – say something! Report suspicious activity to a uniformed officer or call 911. Be prepared to describe:

  • Who or what you saw
  • When you saw it
  • Where it occurred
  • Why it’s suspicious
