Reporting

Preventing terrorist or other criminal activities and emergencies is much easier and more effective than reacting to the aftermath. And it saves lives.

That's why the NCRIC encourages you to contact your local law enforcement agency with tips on wanted individuals, unsolved crimes, or potential threats.

For urgent threats and incidents, Dial 911 or the FBI -JTTF at (415) 553-7400. For non-urgent tips or leads, call 1-866-FOR-TTIP 1-866-367-8847 (24/7) or Email: dutyofficer@ncric.ca.gov

* These activities are not inherently criminal behaviors and may include constitutionally protected activities that must not be documented in an ISE-SAR that contains PII unless there are articulable facts or circumstances that clearly support the determination that the behavior observed is not innocent, but rather reasonably indicative of pre-operational planning associated with terrorism. Race, ethnicity, gender, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, or gender identity must not be considered as factors creating suspicion (but attributes may be documented in specific suspect descriptions for identification purposes). The activities listed as “Potential Criminal or Non-Criminal Activity” are not inherently criminal behaviors and are potentially constitutionally protected; thus, additional facts or circumstances must be articulated in the incident.
