The City of Chicago wishes you a happy holiday season

and, whatever you do, never miss an opportunity to indulge in paranoia...

Bureau of Strategic Deployment



Winter Holiday Public Awareness Bulletin

Each year, the Winter Holiday Season tends to spur larger crowds
and increased traffic throughout the City. As it pertains to shop-

ping districts, public transportation routes, and all other places of
public assembly, the increased crowds become a matter of Home-
land Security concern. During this holiday period, as a matter of
public safety, we ask that all members of the general public
heighten their awareness regarding any and all suspicious activity
that may be an indicator of a threat to public safety. It is impor-
tant to immediately report any or all of the below suspect activi-

Physical Surveillance (note taking, binocular use, cameras, video, maps)
Attempts to gain sensitive information regarding key facilities
Attempts to penetrate or test physical security / response procedures
Attempts to improperly acquire explosives, weapons, ammunition, dan-
gerous chemicals, etc.
Suspicious or improper attempts to acquire official vehicles, uniforms,
badges or access devices
Presence of individuals who do not appear to belong in workplaces, busi-
ness establishments, or near key facilities
Mapping out routes, playing out scenarios, monitoring key facilities, tim-
ing traffic lights
Stockpiling suspicious materials or abandoning potential containers for
explosives (e.g., vehicles, suitcases, etc)
Suspicious reporting of lost or stolen identification

See Something, Say Something
CALL 911
