Protecting Citizens’ Civil Rights & Civil Liberties
We respect citizens’ privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties by emphasizing behavior, rather than appearance, in identifying suspicious activity.
Factors such as race, ethnicity, and/or religious affiliation are not suspicious. You should only report suspicious behavior and situations (e.g., an unattended backpack or package, or someone breaking into a restricted area).
