A Note about Suspicious Activity
See Something, Say Something: The CCSO strongly encourages citizens to report suspicious activity. If you become concerned about activity in your neighborhood or at a business, trust your instincts and call police.

Sometimes when officers canvass a neighborhood as part of the investigation of a crime, we find neighbors who say they saw suspicious activity but did not call us because they were not sure if they should, they did not want to bother us, or they assumed someone else would call instead. Often, choosing instead to call us might have helped us solve a crime or interrupt a crime in progress.

So remember: Never talk yourself out of calling police if you see suspicious activity. You might be the key to stopping a crime.
