FRANKFORT, Ky. – The Kentucky Intelligence Fusion Center today launched the “See Something, Say Something” statewide campaign; an effort aimed at improving crime prevention in Kentucky. The campaign urges citizens to report suspicious activity of any type to an anonymous toll-free tip line, 1-866-EYE-ON-KY (393-6659), or to local law enforcement tip lines.
“If Kentuckians see something suspicious or out of the ordinary, we encourage you to give us a call at 1-866-EYE-ON-KY,” said (Ret) Maj. Alecia Webb-Edgington, director of the Kentucky Office of Homeland Security and Chairman of the Intelligence Fusion Center Governance Board. “Campaigns like this in other states, and right here in Kentucky with Louisville’s (502) 574-LMPD and Bowling Green/Warren County’s (270) 781-CLUE , have been a highly successful part of local and state law enforcements efforts to prevent criminal activity and solve more cases.”
“Suspicious activity” can include:
Ø Persons asking unusual questions about building security;
Ø Persons taking pictures or video of buildings, bridges or other locations;
Ø Persons asking detailed questions about the schedules of public transportation;
Ø Persons seen timing the arrival/departure of public transportation;
Ø Persons seen loitering around non-public areas around reservoirs, water treatment plants, dams or power plants;
Ø Persons watching a building for extended periods of time;
Ø Suspicious vehicles parked in unusual places or at unusual times.
1-866-EYE-ON-KY is an anonymous tip line, which allows Kentuckians to report any suspicious criminal or terrorist activity they see. Citizens may also issue a tip on-line by visiting www.homelandsecurity.ky.gov/tipline.
Analysts located in the Intelligence Fusion Center answer calls and record information for distribution to the appropriate local, state or federal law enforcement agencies.
