INDIANAPOLIS -- Many have expressed concern for an increased likeliness of terrorist activity as a result of Osama bin Laden's death May 1, 2011.
While there are presently no threats known for the State of Indiana, it is reasonable for all citizens to continue to remain vigilant and alert for activity that looks out of place or otherwise suspicious.
An excellent way for any citizen to report unusual or suspicious activity is located at the Indiana Intelligence Fusion Center website located at www.in.gov/iifc/. Clicking on the red "IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING!" link will lead viewers to www.in.gov/iifc/2373.htm.
A key aspect of the "IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING!" campaign is the toll-free number of 1-877-226-1026.
Citizens are encouraged to call the number if they see suspicious activity.
Trained personnel will answer the number 24 hours a day and collect tip information to forward to the proper investigating agency. Importance to many, the caller may choose to remain anonymous.
Keep in mind the following when reporting suspicious activity:
* Activity (describe exactly what they are doing),
* Location (provide exact location),
* Size (the number of people, ages, gender, and physical descriptions of each individual involved),
* Time (provide date, time and duration of activity), and
* Equipment (describe vehicle, color, make, license plate, guns, camera, etc.).
