Possible Types of Suspicious Activity
Suspicious People Who Don't Belong
Another pre-incident indicator of terrorism is the presence of suspicious people who just "don't belong." This does not mean we should profile individuals, but does mean we should recognize and report suspicious behaviors that do not comport to the setting. This includes suspicious border crossings, stowaways aboard a ship or people jumping ship in a port. It may mean having someone in a workplace, building, neighborhood or business establishment that does not fit in because of their demeanor or unusual questions being asked.
