Fairfield's police chief is stressing vigilance for Connecticut residents in the wake of this week's terror attack in New York City.
Police Chief Gary MacNamara is telling people to look out for things in their everyday lives that are not normal, similar to the "See Something, Say Something" campaign.
"Targeted violence is complex, but there are small little signs and indicators by actions, or signs, or behavior, by location or by items that seem out of the ordinary," says MacNamara.
MacNamara says that it is very hard to know when or how attacks are being planned, so small indicators that many may not notice are important to watch for.
Even if the situation turns out to be nothing, Fairfield's chief of police wants people not to be embarrassed to call.
"Those small calls matter," says MacNamara. "That's really what we want people to do is call in the small stuff, it will hopefully prevent the big stuff."
The Department of Homeland Security and police departments across western Connecticut have anonymous tiplines for those who have information to report.
