Reporting Suspicious Activity
If you see any suspicious activity in your neighborhood, call the police immediately.  Remember to be specific and document every incident.  Note the time of day, the exact location, the clothes, appearance, and characteristics of the suspect.  Even if they do not respond immediately to the concern, your call makes a difference in building a case to increase police presence in the area.

Emergency Preparedness

AlertSCC: Register for Important Emergency Information
The City of San José is participating in a new Countywide Emergency Notification System that will provide timely and possibly lifesaving information to registered residents. The system will be used to provide emergency alerts in San José and/or Santa Clara County. Land line phones for home and business are already in the system. You’ll need to register to receive emergency alerts on your cell phone, PDA, or device for the hearing impaired. It’s a simple step that will help you be better prepared for an emergency.
