Reporting Suspicious Behavior

Often times residents  believe a call to the police or 911 will be a burden or unnecessarily tie up police resources. However, reporting suspicious activity immediately can help police prevent or interrupt a crime.

If someone is in physical danger or you believe a specific crime is happening, call 911 immediately.

If it is a non-emergency, call the Covert Police Department (269) 764-8900 and dial 1 for dispatch to inform an officer of the suspicious behavior and be prepared to answer questions, such as describing vehicles, people, location, etc.

Suspicious behavior can include:

  •   Unusual noises, including screaming, sounds of fighting, breaking glass
  •  People in or around buildings or areas who do not appear to be conducting legitimate business
  • Unauthorized people in restricted areas
  • Vehicles driving slowly and aimlessly through neighborhoods, around schools or parking lots
  • People peering into parked vehicles that are not their own
  • People who change their behavior when they notice they have been seen
  • People dressed inappropriately for the weather or occasion, (i.e., heavy coat in warm weather)
  • Abandoned parcels or other items in unusual locations (i.e. in a lobby or elevator)
