Anything that seems slightly “out-of-place” or is occurring at an unusual time could be criminal activity.
Not every stranger who comes into the area is a criminal by any means. There are many door-to door salesman, repairman, and service men moving around the neighborhood all the time. Criminals sometimes take advantage by pretending to be legitimate workmen.
Call the police immediately about suspicious activity. Don’t worry about bothering them or about being embarrassed if your suspicious prove to be unfounded. Instead think about what might happen if you don’t act.
The police department would rather investigate than be called when it’s too late. You call could stop a criminal act. Also call the voice mail number so that we can make all the neighbors aware of any suspicious activity. Be alert and thanks for calling.
All crimes should be reported to 911, no matter how minor the crime may seem. A police officer may not be dispatched for a minor crime, but it is important to report it. Police resources are allocated in part based on the number of crimes reported in a given area.
If you should see or hear anything that looks “out-of” place don’t hesitate to call 911. Your actions could help to prevent a crime.
Trust your instincts. Concerned and alert neighbors CAN make a difference!
Have this information ready when calling 911:
The 911 operator may not want all these details at the time of your call; but while you are waiting for the police, jot down any additional information you have so you won’t forget to tell the officer when he arrives.
Never try to investigate suspicious activity yourself and don’t hesitate to call just because you do not have all the preceding details. Don’t worry that your concern is not important enough to bother the police. It could very well be important.
If you hear Fireworks or gunshots call 911 immediately. The police are not notified by posts on NextDoor.
