In the world in which we live, preparedness and vigilance are more important than ever. Whether it’s the rise of shootings, or the migration of terrorism into cyberspace, crime and terror are constantly evolving and law enforcement has to adapt in response.
For that reason, the Safe OC website, a localized version of the national “If You See Something, Say Something” anti-terrorism public awareness campaign, is growing and altering its look and information to better react to the changing nature of danger.
In addition to information from the national campaign, Safe OC now has a button to submit tips on its home page as well as links to local contacts for where to report suspicious activity, including 34 local law enforcement agencies.
Also included are threats that have emerged in the past dozen years since the program was created, such as cyber security, active shooters and human trafficking.
