App Helps Neighbors Work Together to Prevent Domestic Terrorism

AlertID Helps Neighbors Be Eyes and Ears for Police

 

Las Vegas, NV (December 17, 2015) – In light of the San Bernardino tragedy and recent events around the globe, Americans are looking to feel safe and secure in their daily lives. The Homeland Security “See Something, Say Something™” campaign was implemented to encourage residents to share information with authorities and raise awareness in our communities.

 

Thanks for reading Hellenic News of America

The free AlertID app helps you to do just that. It allows you to stay informed of crimes and suspicious activity in your neighborhood and includes a virtual neighborhood watch, giving you the ability to post concerns and photos to all members in your neighborhood(s) from any location.

 

Informed, vigilant communities play a crucial part in keeping our nation safe. Alert citizens are the eyes and ears of law enforcement. AlertID has millions of members in all 50 states and alerts members with up to date crime and other information for the neighborhoods they care about. It also encourages members to look out for one another and share necessary information with law enforcement, helping to reduce crime.

 

When it comes to suspicious activity, pay attention to what seems out of place in your neighborhood or near your work. If something is suspicious, trust your instincts and contact local police. Below are examples of suspicious behavior that you may witness in your neighborhood or near your workplace.

 

  • Someone pays unusual attention to facilities or buildings beyond a casual or professional interest.

 

  • Someone who is recording, photographing or monitoring activities that appear to be more than just typical curiosity.

 

  • Someone who doesn’t seem to belong in the workplace, neighborhood, business establishment, or anywhere else.

 

  • Someone acting in a nervous or suspicious manner.

 

  • People who are in places they should not be, as well as people who do not fit into the daily routine of surroundings or an emergency scene.

 

  • A person wearing unusually bulky, loose-fitting apparel inconsistent with current weather conditions.

 

  • Suspicious or abandoned vehicles.
