Guidelines for Reporting
Remember these guidelines when witnessing a suspicious event or crime:
- Do not confront the subject or subjects; be a good witness.
- Inform police of any vehicles that were involved and their description.
- Providing a name and call back number helps police.
- Provide police with a physical description of the subject; scars, facial hair, and tattoos help identify subjects.
- Provide police with a detailed clothing description of what the subject was wearing, such as, red shirt, blue baseball cap, white tennis shoes.
- Provide police with how many subjects were involved and gender or race.
- Stay on the telephone as long as possible with police.
- Vehicle descriptions are very important; license plate numbers, make of vehicle, color, condition of vehicle, and any bumper stickers or distinguishing items on the vehicle.
- When reporting a crime or suspicious activities get directly to what you observed.
