What is Suspicious Activity?

The CHPD has made many arrests and solved several crimes as a result of 911 calls from its citizens.  Patrol officers count on residents’ eyes and ears to help identify things that are out of place.  Residents are encouraged to call 911 when they witness suspicious activity.  The CHPD has a strong Neighborhood Watch Program with over 160 organized blocks.  The program offers resources for citizens to address things like suspicious activity.  For a helpful guide on what is suspicious and how to report it click here.
