How You Can Help.
This is a message that
bears repeating, no matter where you live in the world:
Your assistance is needed in preventing terrorist acts.
It's a fact that certain
kinds of activities can indicate terrorist plans that are in the works,
especially when they occur at or near high profile sites or places where
large numbers of people gather--like government buildings, military facilities,
utilities, bus or train stations, major public events. If you see or know
about suspicious activities, like the ones listed below, please report
them immediately to the proper authorities. In the United States, that
means your closest Joint Terrorist Task Force, located in an FBI Field
Office. In other countries, that means your closest law enforcement/counterterrorism
you aware of anyone video recording or monitoring activities, taking notes,
using cameras, maps, binoculars, etc., near key facilities/events?
Questioning: Are you aware of anyone attempting to gain information
in person, by phone, mail, email, etc., regarding a key facility or people
who work there?
Tests of Security: Are
you aware of any attempts to penetrate or test physical security or procedures
at a key facility/event?
Acquiring Supplies: Are
you aware of anyone attempting to improperly acquire explosives, weapons,
ammunition, dangerous chemicals, uniforms, badges, flight manuals, access
cards or identification for a key facility/event or to legally obtain items
under suspicious circumstances that could be used in a terrorist attack?
Persons: Are you aware of anyone who does not appear to belong
in the workplace, neighborhood, business establishment or near a key
"Dry Runs": Have
you observed any behavior that appears to be preparation for a terrorist
act, such as mapping out routes, playing out scenarios with other people,
monitoring key facilities/events, timing traffic lights or traffic flow,
or other suspicious activities?
Deploying Assets: Have
you observed abandoned vehicles, stockpiling of suspicious materials, or
persons being deployed near a key facility/event?
If you answered yes
to any of the above...if you have observed any suspicious activity that
may relate to terrorism...again, please contact the Joint Terrorist
Task Force or law enforcement/counterterrorism agency closest to you immediately. Your
tip could save the lives of innocent people, just like you and yours.
