According to APD, if you see anyone who appears suspicious, or any activity that makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up, the Austin Police Department urges you to call 9-1-1 immediately.

Precautions you should take include:

  • Keeping your doors and windows locked at night.

  • Setting your security alarm, if you have one.

  • Do not leave your garage door open when your garage unattended.

  • Do not leave valuable items in your car.

Overall, if you see suspicious activity in our neighborhood or in Great Hills Park, call 911.
