Lake County Sheriff’s Office: “See Something, Say Something”

(Waukegan, IL) With the recent school shooting in Florida, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office is reminding residents to report anything considered threatening or concerning. The Sheriff’s Office says it’s urging people to follow the motto: “If you see something, say something.” Things that could be considered concerning include seeing or hearing a threat about possible violence, especially on a mass scale…a concerning post on social media…a sudden change in a person’s behavior…and circumstances that seem to be out of the norm. Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran says “It’s not uncommon for a tip from the public to have significant results.” He also says community tips are taken very seriously, and that they would rather have a false alarm, than a serious situation that could have been avoided.
