Homeland Security & Terrorism Awareness - Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) Initiative (NSI)


The Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting Initiative is a partnership among federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement that establishes a national capacity for gathering, documenting, processing, analyzing, and sharing suspicious activity information—also referred to as the SAR process—in a manner that rigorously protects the privacy and civil liberties of Americans.


To report suspicious activity, contact the police immediately. Describe specifically what you observed, including:

  • Who or what you saw;
  • When you saw it;
  • Where it occurred; and
  • Why it's suspicious.
If there is an emergency, call 9–1–1.
