Law enforcement is working hard every day to prevent terrorism in America.
There are some things that you can do too.
* Know the routines . Be alert as you go about your daily business. This will help you to learn the normal routines of your neighborhood, community and workplace. Understanding these routines will help you spot anything out of place.
* Be aware of what is going on around you. Whether traveling, at work or at home be on the lookout for suspicious activities. Learn to spot suspicious packages, luggage, or mail abandoned in a crowded place like an office building, an airport, a school, or a shopping center.
* Take what you hear seriously. If you hear or know of someone who has bragged or talked about plans to harm citizens in violent attacks or who claims membership in a terrorist organization, take it seriously and report it to law enforcement immediately.
