Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR)

Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR)
Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR)  The Importance of "If You See Something, Say Something" in Public Works. Public Works employees are in a unique position to be eyes and ears in our communities, especially when it comes to public safety .  We have thousands of employees that provide a broad spectrum of services that touch the lives of every individual.  Our work provides opportunities to observe and report suspicious activities.  This webinar will discuss the “National Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) Initiative” and the “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign.  It will highlight why it is important that public works professionals receive SAR training and report suspicious activities.  Also, what is a Fusion Center?  Why are they important.  What do they have to do with Suspicious Activity Reporting?  10-11 AM Central time

After attending this session, participants will be better able to:

- identify and evaluate pre-incident terrorism indicators that can be considered suspicious activity.
- promote protection and respect for the privacy and civil liberties of others when reporting suspicious activities. 
-  identify the functions and the importance of Fusion Centers.

This program is sponsored by the APWA Emergency Management Committee.
