Report Suspicious Activity

What to report

Alert local authorities with as much detail as possible, including:

  • Who or what you saw
  • When you saw it
  • Where it occurred
  • Why it's suspicious
If you’re unsure if activity is “suspicious,”please remember to focus on the actual behavior. Factors such as race, ethnicity, national origin, or religious affiliation alone are not suspicious. We are committed to ensuring that the privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties of our citizens are preserved.

Who to report it to

  • San Diego Police Department: (619) 531-2000
  • San Diego Law Enforcement Coordination Center: (858) 495-7200 or submit a tip online
  • Dial 9-1-1 for immediate, life-threatening emergencies only
