Suspicious Behaviour

Noticed any suspicious behaviour lately? If so, the Police want to hear from you. What you know, no matter how small it seems, might crack a case.

What is suspicious behaviour?

Any incident or circumstances that seem unusual or out of place:
Someone carrying items at an unusual time or location, going door to door without appropriate id, forcing their way into a locked vehicle, sitting in a car checking out the street or cruising the street repeatedly, is obviously behaving suspiciously.

If you notice lots of traffic going to and from a house every day, or someone being forced into a vehicle or showing unusual mental or physical symptoms, this needs to be reported. As does unusual noise such as yelling, alarms, gunshots, glass breaking, or dogs barking non-stop.

What do I do?

  • Think about the date, time and where the incident is happening
  • Call Crimestoppers or the Police, and answer the questions that you are asked (you can be anonymous)
  • Tell them what is happening, stay on the phone, and if it’s safe, keep watching and report what is happening
  • Take photos with your phone only if it is safe, and do NOT approach the person directly

Remember: A person isn’t suspicious – their behaviour is!
