The Washington, DC Metropolitan Police Department
(MPD) has a special community outreach program called, Operation TIPP
(Terrorist Incident Prevention Program) which is designed to help detect and prevent terrorism incidents in the nation's capital.
The fact is, preventing terrorism is really everybody's business and often times it will be an individual, business or service organization that will be the first to notice activity that might appear suspicious or out of the ordinary. When this happens, it is very important that these suspicions be immediately shared with law enforcement so that the situation can be examined, evaluated and if necessary, be acted upon.
Operation TIPP has two main components: 1) Educating citizens and businesses within very specific industries on what to look out for in the way of suspicious activity related to their industry; and 2) Providing easy and convenient ways--including a confidential toll-free number (1-877-YOU-WATCH) to report suspicious activity to police.
The program also provides important information on what to look for, what to do and how you can help. For more details, visit: www.tinyurl.com/OperationTIPP
