Ms. Smith reports:

On October 12, DHS will implement its database of “suspicious activity reports” (SAR). SAR programs encourage intelligence and homeland security officials, law enforcement officers, emergency responders, and even the public to report “suspicious” activities of neighbors and strangers to law enforcement and intelligence agencies. According to the Center For Investigative Reporting, (CIR) “Reports will be submitted not just by state and local police and agencies within the Department of Homeland Security, but also private corporations that control economic and infrastructure assets considered high-profile targets for terrorists.” This nationwide database will “connect the dots” in order to find terrorists who are conspiring to carry out an attack. The DHS reports will be overseen by the Justice Department.
