INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WANE) – Governor Mike Pence was briefed by Indiana public safety and homeland security teams in the wake of recent terrorist attacks.

“Our hearts and prayers go out to the injured and brave first responders following the terrorist attacks in New York, New Jersey and Minnesota this weekend,” Pence said in a press release.

Pence said he met with Indiana public safety and homeland security teams for a full briefing on investigations regarding the attacks. He said there is no higher priority than the safety and security of our citizens. He also offered a reminder to citizens to speak up.

“We remind every Hoosier, if you see something, say something,” Pence said in a press release. “If you observe suspicious activity, contact law enforcement immediately.”

Pence advised if Indiana residents see something suspicious they should contact Indiana Intelligence Fusion Center at 1-877-226-1026 or iifc@iifc.in.gov. The purpose of the organization is to evaluate criminal and terrorist activity. Alternatively, the Indiana Department of Homeland Security has an app available for free called “Indiana Homeland Security Report Hazards.” Imminent threats however, should be reported to 911.
