Have you noticed any suspicious behaviour lately? . . . incidents, events, people or circumstances that seem unusual or out of place . . . such as:

  • Someone carrying property e.g. electronic equipment, office equipment, a locked bike, at an unusual time or location
  • Someone going door to door without appropriate identification
  • A vehicle cruising the street repeatedly
  • Someone forcing their way into a locked vehicle
  • Different people buying something from a vehicle
  • Lots of traffic going to and from a house every day
  • One or more people sitting in a car checking out the street
  • Someone being forced into a vehicle
  • Someone showing unusual mental or physical symptoms. They might have been in an accident or need other medical or physical help
  • Unusual noises like alarms, gunshots, yelling, fighting sounds, dogs barking non-stop

What do you do?

  • Stay calm and breathe
  • Think about the date, time and where the incident is happening
