9/11 Anniv. Renews Call for Vigilance

We are only a few days away from the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington D.C., and the Dallas Police Department is reminding all in North Texas to be extra vigilant in reporting suspicious activity.

With many Americans planning to attend or watch memorial services, the public is reminded to be particularly watchful near government facilities, commemorative events and anywhere large crowds gather.

While there is no credible or specific threat at this time, the DPD said lone actors could attempt to disrupt events on this solemn occasion.

With that in mind, everyone is reminded to follow the slogan of the nationwide public awareness campaign and to report any suspicious activity or behavior to local law enforcement -- "If you see something, say something."

Officials would rather investigate something that turns out to be nothing than to not be given a tip because the witness didn't think it was worth a call. 

And that rule goes for everywhere, not just 9/11 observances or where there are crowds. If you see something weird, report it.

See a list of some of the events going on around North Texas leading up to the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001.
