KPD Encourages Citizens To Report Suspicious Activity

The Killeen Police Department would like to remind citizens that with all the activities occurring during this 4th of July holiday weekend, to be vigilant of anything that looks suspicious or out of the ordinary and report it to the local law enforcement authorities, consistent with the “If You See Something, Say Something™” national awareness campaign.

The nationwide “If You See Something, Say Something™” public awareness campaign is a simple and effective program to raise public awareness of indicators of terrorism and terrorism-related crime, and to emphasize the importance of reporting suspicious activity to the proper local law enforcement authorities. The campaign was originally used by New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), which has licensed the use of the slogan to DHS for anti-terrorism and anti-terrorism crime related efforts.

While there is no known threat to the Killeen community, citizens of Killeen are likely to observe an elevated police presence throughout the city during this holiday weekend. This presence, as well as the citizen’s vigilance, will make for a safer community for everyone to enjoy.
