911 Calls and Calls to FBAC - In an emergency always call 911 first.

If possible, have a second person call the FBAC cell phone while you are on the phone with 911, or place FBAC call after the 911 call. This is important for our FBAC officers' safety to ensure they have necessary backup. Members receive an email every month with the FBAC cellphone number and schedule. 

For non-emergency calls or to report non-part one crimes (such as parking problems, noise complaints, etc.) you can call the FBAC Patrol when they are on duty. If FBAC is not on duty, then these calls should also be made to 911 so that there is a record of the complaint.

See Something Say Something Campaign

If you see suspicious activity, say something. Suspicious activity can be difficult to define, but if you see something that doesn't feel right and makes you question the activity, call 911. Keep in mind that suspicious should be based on a person's actions, and not on their appearance, race, nationality, or sex. 

Broken Window Theory

"Consider a building with a few broken windows. If the windows are not repaired, the tendency is for vandals to break a few more windows. Eventually they may even break into the building, and if it's unoccupied, perhaps become squatters or light fires inside.
Or consider a pavement. Some litter accumulates. Soon, more litter accumulates. Eventually, people even start leaving bags of refuse from take-out restaurants there or even break into cars."
James Q. Wilson and George L. Kelling in a 1982 article in The Atlantic Monthly
