Hoosiers encouraged to report suspicious activity at summer events


INDIANAPOLIS — With summer events in full swing and recent national reports of security concerns regarding Independence Day celebrations, the Indiana State Police and the Indiana Department of Homeland Security are asking Hoosiers be on the lookout for suspicious activity and to report it.

The slogan “If you see something, say something,” encourages Hoosiers not to hesitate to report suspicious activity they observe around them.

When reporting suspicious behavior, describe several key details, including: who or what was observed; when and where the behavior was witnessed; why the activity is believed to be suspicious; descriptions of individuals involved, such as gender, age, physical attributes and unique characteristics; and any equipment, including vehicles (make, model and color) or weapons.

To report suspicious activity, contact on-site security, local law enforcement or the Indiana Intelligence Fusion Center at 877-226-1026.
