ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles Police Department is sharing a video from a nationwide campaign to raise public awareness of terrorism indicators.

St. Charles police received permission from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to share a video from the campaign on the city's website, according to a news release. The 9-minute video, which explains how to identify and report suspicious activity, can be viewed at www.stcharlesil.gov/terrorism-awareness.

The video explains how acts of terrorism could be developed and implemented by showing different scenarios of suspicious activity. The St. Charles Police Department hopes that sharing the video will allow residents to become active participants in protecting the community, according to the release.

St. Charles police always urge residents to support any suspicious activity so an officer can investigate the incident. Call 630-377-4435 and for emergencies, dial 911. Residents can also share information anonymously at 1-866-378-4267.
