Fayetteville Police Department Offers Homeland Security Tips


             As a general reminder, the Fayetteville Police Department would like to provide to citizens a few safety tips and advise the public to always be aware of their surroundings.


  • Report strange or unusual behavior.
  • Report suspicious packages or items.
  • Do not accept packages from strangers.
  • Do not leave luggage unattended.


The very nature of terrorism suggests that there will be little or no warning.  Terrorists often choose targets that have relatively unlimited public access, such as shopping centers, transportation hubs, and public buildings.  Additionally, keep in mind that although Ft. Bragg and Pope Air Force Base are not open to the public, they should be considered potential targets.  Remember, if you see it, report it!
