Presented by the Director of Public Information Sergeant Richard D. Bratz
As American flags are lowered across this great nation, the Delaware State Police would like to express our sincere condolences and deep appreciation to the officers in Dallas who under fire willingly answered their call to duty. They freely put themselves into harm’s way to help protect and save others. We would like to extend our hearts, thoughts and prayers to the Dallas Police Department and the Dallas Area Rapid Transit officers, first responders and their families. We are forever beholden to the men and women of the Dallas Law Enforcement community for their courageous service and untold sacrifices they have made and will continue to make to keep the public safe.
All of Delaware is reminded to stay vigilant to prevent a crime or terrorist act. The Delaware State Police are consistently working to keep our state safe and are ready to act on information about suspicious circumstances. In the event of an emergency, people should still call 911. Citizens are encouraged to be watchful and observant in paying very close attention to their surroundings. If something does not look or feel right, they should take action and notify the police.
The Delaware State Police Fusion Center (Delaware Information and Analysis Center) is working closely with federal and state partners to assess any nexus or existing threats to Delaware. There are no known existing credible threats to Delaware.
Although there is no known threat to Delaware, state officials are reminding people of Delaware, of the important role they have in helping to keep our state safe by reporting suspicious situations or circumstances that could be related to crime or possible acts of terrorism. The Delaware State Police encourage increased vigilance against criminals and terrorists. If you observe activity that appears suspicious, a threat to public safety or related to a potential terrorist event please report it to law enforcement by calling 9-1-1 or the Delaware’s Anti-Terrorism Tip Line at 1-800-Force12. The public can also submit a suspicious activity report through DIAC’s website @ www.dediac.org. We each have a vital and essential role to play to ensure the safety of our families and we sincerely appreciate your assistance.
