Reporting Suspicious Activity

What to Report

No one knows what goes on in your neighborhood better than you. You may see things or hear things that seem out of the ordinary and may indicate suspicious or illegal conduct. Law enforcement officials in Davidson often rely on the instincts and perceptions of citizens to detect activity that is out of the ordinary.

Types of Activity

You should immediately report people who photograph, videotape, sketch, ask detailed questions, or seek blueprints for places such as bridges, highway intersections, communications facilities/towers, government buildings, historic structures, national landmarks, schools, and power plants.


Call 911 to report all suspicious incidents or unusual activity that may require an immediate police response. Otherwise, notify the Davidson Police Department at 704-892-5131.

For suspicious activity that you believe may be associated with domestic or international terrorism that does not require an immediate police response, please contact the Davidson Police Department Investigation Section at 704-892-5131, ext. 251.

Protecting Your Information

Your name, phone number, and email address are extremely beneficial to the case, as they allow us to contact you for follow-up information and questions. You will also need to provide contact information if you would like a response to your message.

While your contact information may be shared among the appropriate law enforcement agencies as a contact, we will make every effort to keep your identity confidential.
