Missouri Office of Homeland Security Launch SafeNation Suspicious Activity Reporting Tool

SafeNation App

Awareness is an important part of preventing threats in Missouri. We need your assistance in the fight against terrorism. Our greatest resources in the detection of suspicious activity are the citizens of Missouri.

The Missouri Office of Homeland Security, in partnership with the three Missouri fusion centers, Kansas City Regional Fusion Center (KCRFC), Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC), and the St. Louis Regional Fusion Center (STLFC), have launched a new tool to instantly report suspicious activity. SafeNation is a mobile suspicious activity reporting application that allows citizens to submit anonymous reports that pertain to potentially suspicious activity observed, known or suspected.

SafeNation is now available to the citizens of Missouri for download (free) in the Apple Store and Google Play. Submitted tips will be routed and addressed by the Missouri fusion centers within your area. As always, call 9-1-1 in case of an emergency.

This initiative will enhance Missouri’s partnership with the US Department of Homeland Security’s See Something Say Something campaign. Please share this announcement with your citizens and within your community and respective disciplines.

The Richmond Heights Police Department is pleased to announce that as of Monday, 6/8/2020, our Body-Worn Camera (BWC) program has been fully implemented.  All uniformed officers have been trained and are now wearing their assigned BWCs.  Our policy can be found on our BWC page located at the link at the bottom of this announcement.
