During an Emergency - Terrorism

The mission of the Arizona Counter Terrorism Information Center (AcTIC) is to protect the citizens and critical infrastructures of Arizona by enhancing intelligence and domestic preparedness operations for all local, state and federal law enforcement agencies.  Mission execution will be guided by the understanding that the key to effectiveness is the development and sharing of information between participants to the fullest extent as is permitted by law or agency policy.

If you see something suspicious or if something just does not seem right, notify the authorities by calling 9-1-1. The video, 8 Signs of Terrorism, illustrates eight signs to be aware of if you suspect a terrorism plot is being planned or under way. The video can help citizens become active participants in maintaining our homeland security.

In the Event of a Terrorist Attack

If a terrorist attack occurs, it is important that you remain calm and follow instructions from local officials and emergency service personnel. You should be aware of your surroundings and watch for additional attacks. Listen to local TV and radio for directions and travel information.
