County Reminds Citizens of Terror Threat

The San Diego County Office of Emergency Services is reminding citizens of the need to continue watching for signs of terrorist activity as the tenth anniversary of 9/11 approaches. “If You See Something, Say Something,” reads the headline on the Eight Signs of Terrorism page of the ReadySanDiego.org site set up by the county in conjunction with the Department of Homeland Security’s Ready.gov.

A main focus of the awareness campaign is a brief video. The eight signs that someone could be a terrorist listed in the video included Surveillance, Elicitation, Testing Security, Funding, Acquiring Supplies, Impersonation, Rehearsal, and Deployment.

Many of the warning signs were rather broad in nature. Under the surveillance heading it is suggested that someone “using vision enhancing devices” to observe secure facilities or even areas where people congregate could be suspicious. Terrorists seeking funding could be raising it through such means as the sale of baby formula or phone cards.

Keith Slotter, the Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s San Diego division, appears at the end of the video, urging citizens to respect the civil rights of others while keeping their guard up. “The focus is suspicious behavior,” says Slotter. “Factors such as race, ethnicity, national origin, or religious affiliation alone are not suspicious.”

Anyone wishing to report suspicious activity is encouraged to do so at the San Diego Law Enforcement Coordination Center’s website or by calling 911 in case of emergency.
