Teller County Sheriff's See Something-Say Something Page

If you see something, say something. We all need to be aware of potential threats, and call 911 or tell a law enforcement official if you see something suspicious.

Protecting Privacy and Civil Liberties

Race, ethnicity, national origin or religious affiliation alone are not suspicious.  It's only appropriate to report suspicious behavior and situations like an unattended backpack in a public place or someone breaking into a restricted area -- not someone's beliefs, thoughts, ideas, expressions, associations or speech unrelated to terrorism or other criminal activity. 

If You See Something, Say Something

The Teller County Sheriff's Office encourages residents and visitors to always be vigilant and act as Teller County's eyes and ears.  If You See Something, Say Something is a national anti-terrorism awareness campaign emphasizing the importance of reporting suspicious activity to law enforcement.  Success relies on everyone's joint vigilance to protect Teller County from terrorism by working with each other to prevent attacks.

Teller County is a safe community and always should be.
