The "If You See Something, Say Something™" campaign respects citizens' privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties
by emphasizing behavior, rather than appearance, in identifying suspicious activity.
If there is an emergency, call 9-1-1 or 337-475-5711
Suspicious activity includes, but is not limited to:
Unusual items or situations
A vehicle is parked in an odd location
A package/luggage is unattended
A window/door is open that is usually closed
A person questions individuals at a level beyond curiosity about a building's purpose, operations, security procedures and/or personnel, shift changes, etc.
Someone pays unusual attention to facilities or buildings beyond a casual or professional interest.
This includes extended loitering without explanation; unusual, repeated, and/or prolonged observation of a building; etc.
Some of these activities could be innocent—it's up to law enforcement to determine whether the behavior warrants investigation. The activities above are not all-inclusive, but have been compiled based on studies of pre-operational aspects of both successful and thwarted terrorist events over several years.
Factors such as race, ethnicity, and/or religious affiliation are not suspicious.
