Sheriff Chad Chronister reminds residents: “If you see something, say something”

In light of ongoing tensions with Iran, Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister is reminding local residents: “if you see something, say something.” The phrase is a post-9/11 campaign to raise public awareness about the importance of reporting suspicious, terrorism-related activity to local and state law enforcement authorities.
“At this time there are no specific, credible threats to Hillsborough County, but your Sheriff’s Office will continue working with our local, state and federal partners to monitor and investigate anything that may arise,” said Sheriff Chronister in a public service announcement (PSA) released on Monday. “Keeping our residents and visitors safe is a top priority.”
Sheriff Chronister reminded residents to stay alert to what is happening around them and not to hesitate to call 911 if they see something that seems odd.
“Do not assume that someone else has called to report the incident,” added Sheriff Chronister.
In addition to calling 911 for an emergency or 813-247-8200 for a non-emergency, a tip can be shared anonymous with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office through the Tip 411 app.
The “See Something, Say Something” PSA can be viewed and dowloaded from the HCSO Sheriff YouTube account:
