Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA) is asking for the public’s help during this election:
“We are asking for your help as a member of the public to address crime and threats in our community from those that may be planning violence or attempting to disrupt the election.
Public safety measures can only be effective when they involve strong collaboration between law enforcement and the community they serve.
All of your federal, state, and local public safety and election officials are united in efforts to make this election safe.
One of our efforts relates to suspicious activity reporting, a concept in which law enforcement and homeland security leaders have partnered with communities to create a strategy that unifies the work of agencies and organizations in identifying and sharing information reasonably indicative of preoperational planning associated with terrorism or other criminal activity, while protecting privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties.
Law enforcement, homeland security, and elections professionals, want to ensure that the public understands how to report suspicious activity to their local law enforcement agency related to the elections.
We also want to ensure that all law enforcement agencies understand the process for the collection, analysis, and submission of suspicious activity reports to ALEA.
With your help, law enforcement will have the ability to identify and stop potential threats of violence and threats to our election process in your community.
The public should contact law enforcement via 9-1-1 when an immediate response is needed regarding suspicious activity for any type of crime, including terrorism.
Report suspicious activity to ALEA’s Fusion Center, at: https://app.alea.gov/SAR/ “
