  • GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT TERRORISM

    Terrorism

    Is the use of force or violence against persons or property in violation of the criminal laws of the United States for purposes of intimidation, coercion, or ransom

    Threats

    Terrorists often use threats to create fear among the public.
    Try to convince citizens that their government is powerless to prevent terrorism. Get immediate publicity for their causes

    Acts of Terrorism

    Acts of terrorism include threats of terrorism; assassinations; kidnappings; hijackings; bomb scares and bombings; cyber attacks (computer-based); and the use of chemical, biological, nuclear, and radiological weapons

    Targets

    High-risk targets for acts of terrorism include military and civilian government facilities, international airports, large cities, and high-profile landmarks. Terrorists might also target large public gatherings, water and food supplies, utilities, and corporate centers. Further, terrorists are capable of spreading fear by sending explosives or chemical and biological agents through the mail

    Within the immediate area of a terrorist event, you would need to rely on police, fire, and other officials for instructions. However, you can prepare in much the same way you would prepare for other crisis events

  • SALISBURY POLICE AWARDED GRANT TO REDUCE IMPAIRED DRIVING

  • Salisbury, 17DEC19- The Police Department was awarded a grant from EOPSS (Executive Office of Public Safety) OGR (Office of Grants and Research, to increase the number of impaired driving patrols during the holiday season.

    Salisbury Police will join other departments across the Commonwealth in the national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over (DSOGPO) enforcement mobilization.

    When an impaired driver is behind the wheel, everyone is at risk- passengers, pedestrians, bicyclists, and other motorists sharing the road. These funds will increase the number of impaired driving patrols over the holidays.

    Regardless of the type or level of impairment, if a driver is operating the vehicle in a dangerous or erratic manner, they will be stopped.

    “Arranging for a sober ride home before celebrating should be a part of everyone’s plans this holiday season,” said Jeff Larason, Director of OGR Highway Safety Division. “We want all drivers to recognize the responsibility they have to drive safely and to avoid getting behind the wheel if they are impaired.”

    Remember- If you feel different, you drive different.
