July 12, 2016Click here to read this post on the City of Cleveland's "Straight from City Hall" blog. Law enforcement agencies involved in preparing for a safe and secure community and activities surrounding the Republican National Convention have set up a designated tip line for the public to utilize for suspicious information or activity to be reported.The public is reminded that everyone needs to do their part. “If you see something, say something.”This tip line number is 1-800-225-5324.
What is suspicious activity?We have our routines every day, going to work, going to school, interacting in our neighborhoods and our communities when we see something that doesn’t fit – we notice.The Division of Police needs the public’s assistance in reporting things that do not fit, things that are out of the ordinary.Examples could include:
- A vehicle parked in an odd location, a package/luggage that is unattended, a window/door that usually is closed and now it is open, or any other out of the ordinary situations.
- A person questioning individuals at a level beyond curiosity.Someone paying an unusual amount of attention to buildings beyond a casual or professional interest, about the buildings operations, security procedures and/or personnel, shift changes, etc.
- Extended loitering without explanation
- Unusual repeated or prolonged observation of buildings, sketching floor plans, taking photographs, etc.
