Suspicious Activity: People aren't suspicious... Behavior is

The way a person looks, or if they are unfamiliar to you, does not make them suspicious. Behavior or activity can be suspicious, but people are not. This awareness can reduce bias and assist dispatchers in evaluating the appropriate response. Knowing what to look for before calling police helps call-takers assess the situation and respond appropriately.
