WESSON: “If you see something, say something”
By Sentinel News Service
Published April 25, 2013

In the wake of the tragic events in Boston, which claimed 4 lives and injured over 140 people, Council President Herb Wesson and the Los Angeles Police Department are reminding everyone to remain vigilant and aware.

“Although an arrest has been made in Boston, there is a real concern about “copycats,” individuals who have seen what occurred and may want to do harm in our community,” said Wesson.  “So, we have to continue to be on the alert.  If you see something, say something.”

 Wesson and the LAPD are encouraging the public to protect their communities by identifying and reporting suspicious behavior and activities known to be used by terrorists.  The “iWatch” program at is an online version of “neighborhood watch” and provides Los Angeles residents a venue to become educated about suspicious behavior and activities and how to report them. 

All reports are reviewed by trained detectives and kept confidential.

Individuals can also call the threat line at 1-877-A-THREAT (1-877-284-7328), call 911 if an emergency or crime is occurring, or contact their local police station or go to to file a report.  At the website, more terrorism related information is also available by viewing an educational film.  For more information, contact Sergeant Rodolfo Lopez, iWatch Liaison Officer at (213) 486-5902 or LAPD Media Relations Section at (213) 486-5910.
