At the height of last week’s mail-bomb saga, the City Police Department called on residents and visitors alike to “remain vigilant and aware of their surroundings.”
Even as Police Commissioner Jim O’Neill on Thursday reassured all 8.6 million New Yorkers and millions of current and prospective tourists that “there are no current, credible threats to any individuals… organizations… or locations here in New York City,” the world’s largest police force still emphasized that keeping the Big Apple safe is a shared responsibility—if you see something, say something. You can alert law enforcement to anything that might seem strange or out of place, or anything that makes you feel uncomfortable, by flagging down a cop, calling 911 or the department’s toll-free counterterrorism hotline at (888) NYC-SAFE.
“The NYPD doesn’t underestimate the difference even one person can make toward our collective safety and neither should the people of New York,” department officials noted.
The City’s Finest also posted to various social media platforms last Thursday a graphic detailing a few tips on identifying a suspicious package (pictured).
