Nebraskans Reminded to be Vigilant

(Lincoln, Neb.)- The Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) is reminding citizens to remain vigilant in the wake of the tragic and senseless acts of violence which have taken place in Boston.

"We join the nation in condemning these acts of terror on the American public," said Colonel David Sankey, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. "We encourage our citizens to continue to help keep our communities safe by reporting suspicious activity."

Nebraskans can report suspicious activity through the Nebraska Information Analysis Center (NIAC) website. Using the "Suspicious Activity Reporting" (SAR) link citizens will access the SAR portal which opens a detailed questionnaire for the reporting party to provide information on suspicious activities or events they believe should be shared with law enforcement.

Colonel Sankey said, "We believe Nebraskans are observant and have good instincts. The SAR tool provides them another avenue in which to make law enforcement aware of their concerns."

The Nebraska State Patrol reminds citizens that emergency situations or situations which require immediate action should be reported to 911.

Nebraskans can find additional Homeland Security Information by visiting the NIAC website "Eight signs of Terrorism" link.

"Our Agency remains vigilant in its responsibilities to protect and serve the people of Nebraska. We encourage our citizens to remain vigilant as well," Sankey said.
