DEMHS: HLS Tips, See Something, Say Something


The Connecticut Intelligence Center (CTIC) encourages individuals to report information concerning suspicious or criminal activity potentially related to terrorism using the Homeland Security (HLS) Tips Line.  The information will be forwarded to the Connecticut Intelligence Center, which may be forwarded to the Joint Terrorism Task Force or to the Homeland Security Operations Center (HSOC) if warranted.

The Office of Counter Terrorism operates a 24/7 toll-free tips line, which allows the citizens of Connecticut a single point of contact to report suspicious incidents or suspected acts of terrorism.

Online SAR Training for Law Enforcement and Hometown Security Partners

NSI SAR Training

The Nationwide SAR Initiative (NSI) training stategy is a multifaceted approach designed to increase the effectiveness of local, state, federal and tribal law enforcement and public safety professionals and other frontline partners in identifying, reporting, evaluating, and sharing pre-incident terrorism indicators to prevent acts of terrorism.  To increase the effectiveness of this multifaceted approach, the NSI has developed training programs for frontline officers and hometown security partners regarding documented and verified behaviors and indicators that, when viewed in the totality of circumstances, may indicate terrorism-related criminal activity.  Both the SAR Line Officer Training and each sector-specific SAR Hometown Security Partners Training discuss how to report identified suspicious activity to the proper authorities while maintaining the protection of citizens' privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties.
