State Authorities Say If You See Something Say Something
Indiana law enforcement officials say they're beefing up security for numerous upcoming events including the Race for the Cure, the Pacers playoffs and the Little 500 among other events.
Department of Homeland Security Executive Director John Hill says they've been watching the events in Boston and Texas for any information that might help in securing events. Hill says 56% of Americans still haven't heard about the "See Something Say Something" campaign. Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter says despite beefed up police presence at events, they still need the eyes and ears of residents.
Carter says residents must always remain alert and if they see anything that appears to be a public threat, they should report it to authorities immediately. Carter says folks shouldn't hesitate to call 911 or the Indiana Intelligence Fusion Center at 1-877-226-1026.
