CFP 2019 Awareness
Planning on visiting Downtown San José as it's transformed into Championship Campus for College Football Playoff 2019? Here are helpful tips on staying safe while you're having fun as well as ensuring others have a great experience, too.

If You See Something, Say Something
The "See Something, Say Something" public awareness campaign was created to raise awareness regarding indicators of terrorism and terrorism-related crimes.

During the championship weekend, report suspicious activity to the San José Police Department's Hotline, (408) 277-4041.

The public should only report suspicious behavior and these types of situations:

  • Unattended backpack left in an open space
  • Someone trying to break into a restricted area
  • Acquiring supplies: When someone is purchasing, storing or stealing explosives and weapons or ammunition.
  • Elicitation: Anyone attempting to gain information about a place, person or operation
  • Test of security: This is usually conducted by driving by a potential target, moving into sensitive areas and observing the responses of security and law enforcement 
  • Surveillance: A target area that will most likely be observed during the planning phase 

When reporting suspicious activity remember to give the most accurate information possible. Information reporting may include:

  • Brief description of the activity 
  • Date, time and location of the activity
  • Physical identifiers of anyone you observe
  • Description of vehicles (i.e. license plate, make, model)
  • Information about where the people involved in suspicious activities may have gone 
  • Your contact information (optional)

Important Phone Numbers
  • For emergencies, call 9-1-1
  • For general public safety information and non-emergencies, contact SJPD at (408) 277-8900 or 3-1-1
  • For suspicious activity during CFP Championship Weekend (1/4/19-1/7/19), call SJPD Hotline Number at (408) 277-4041

Lost and Found
Reports of lost, found or stolen items can be made at any guest relations booth or to any police officer at the event. Lost and stolen item reports may be made online at

Misplaced Children
Parents or guardians reporting lost children should immediately contact a police officer or event security. The child's information will be provided to the law enforcement command post.

If a police officer, event staff employee, security employee or volunteer finds a lost child, every effort will be made to quickly return the child to the parents/guardians. A police officer or designee will stay with the child until the parents/guardians are located. If the parents/guardians cannot be located in a reasonable amount of time, the police officer may bring the child to the law enforcement command post until the parties are reunited.

Unmanned Aircraft Systems (Drones)
No unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) will be allowed in or above the downtown airspace in accordance with federal law. This includes all remotely controlled aircraft, quad-copters, and drones for both recreational and commercial use.
