Attorney General Ashley Moody is urging Floridians to be vigilant and report suspicious activity with regard to potential terrorism.
Following the Hamas terrorist attacks on Israel and subsequent war, the FBI has warned about potential terrorist attacks. In an Oct. 31 congressional hearing, FBI Director Christopher Wray testified that the terrorism threat is “on a whole other level.” Moody received a special briefing, prompting a press conference to alert the public.
Moody is encouraging Floridians to report any suspicious activity to law enforcement. Some things to look out for include:
- Unusual situations, such as a vehicle parked in an odd or prohibited location, or someone acquiring large quantities of items like cell phones, timers or toxic materials;
- Items like packages, backpacks or luggage left unattended;
- Damage to security devices, for example cameras, perimeter fencing or lighting; and
- Prolonged observation and unusual photography of a building, bridge or structure by a suspicious person.
To report unusual activity in Florida, call 855-FLA-SAFE. In case of an emergency, call 911.
