Suspicious Activity

Remember- People are not suspicious, behavior is. We sometimes describe someone as a “suspicious person”, yet it is actually their behavior that is suspicious. The safety of our community depends on all of us being vigilant and aware of suspicious behavior, and promptly reporting this activity to law enforcement or Public Safety.

 How do we determine what is suspicious activity or behavior? A suspicious activity is     when a person’s conduct or action does not fit the normal day-to-day activity in our community. It is an occurrence that is out of place and should not be happening in our community. It is not your responsibility to figure out exactly what is happening; law enforcement or Public Safety will make that determination. Rely on your instincts, and a common-sense observation.

.If you observe suspicious activity:

 Call 911 or SJU Department of Public Safety at 718 990-5252. Describe specifically what you observed, including:

  •      Who or what you saw;
  •      When you saw it;
  •      Where it occurred; and
  •      Why it's suspicious.
  •      Do Not confront the person
  •      You can report suspicious activity anonymously
