See It, Hear It, Report It
The Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office encourages citizens to report suspicious activity. Suspicious activity can be any person, act, event, vehicle, or situation that appears questionable. Trust your instincts! If it "just doesn't seem right" to you, that is when you should call the Sheriff's Office.
- "See It" - If you see suspicious activity, report it. The Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office relies on early and accurate information from citizens in reporting suspicious activity. You and your neighbors can be the first to spot a burglar in or around a home, or a strange car in a driveway. Remember, lighting is considered to be the most cost effective deterrent to crime.
- "Hear It" - Listen for suspicious activity. Unusual sounds or barking dogs can be caused by prowlers or suspicious vehicles. Everyone should get in the habit of looking outside their windows, especially if the noises wake you at night.
- "Report It" - Remember, you are the eyes and ears of the Sheriff's Office and your community. Report suspicious activity immediately. Anything that seems slightly out of place or "doesn't look right" could be criminal activity. When calling, be sure to report the reason for your call and the location of the activity.
