Music for All is committed to providing safe and secure events. It's easy to take for granted the routine moments in our everyday lives—going to work or school, the grocery store or the gas station. However, your everyday is different than your neighbor’s—filled with the moments that make it uniquely yours. So if you see something you know shouldn't be there—or someone's behavior that doesn't seem quite right—say something.  Informed, alert communities play a critical role in keeping our nation safe. 

To report suspicious activity, immediately contact Music for All event staff at the event. Music for All will contact local law enforcement agency. Describe specifically what you observed, including:

  • Who or what you saw;
  • When you saw it;
  • Where it occurred;
  • and Why it's suspicious.
