TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) – Florida law-enforcement officials are encouraging people to remain vigilant and report suspicious behavior to prevent terrorist attacks.

Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Rick Swearingen said that “If You See Something, Say Something," you should call 855-FLA-SAFE or report online at FDLE’s website.

"Our nation’s security is a shared responsibility and every citizen plays a critical role in identifying and reporting suspicious activities and threats," Swearingen said.

"The See Something, Say Something campaign urges citizens to report possible terrorist activity to law enforcement. Reporting like this can prevent terrorist attacks.”

Tips received through the hotline and online reporting form are answered by the Florida Fusion Center, a 24-hour watch desk at FDLE. There intelligence analysts assess the information and work with the state’s Regional Domestic Security Task Forces.
