SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY REPORTING (SAR) CRITERIA GUIDEDEFINED CRIMINAL ACTIVITY AND POTENTIAL TERRORISM
POTENTIAL CRIMINAL OR NON-CRIMINAL ACTIVITY REQUIRING ADDITIONAL INFORMATION DURING VETTING *
* These activities are not inherently criminal behaviors and may include constitutionally protected activities that must not be documented in an ISE-SAR that contains PII unless there are articulable facts or circumstances that clearly support the determination that the behavior observed is not innocent, but rather reasonably indicative of pre-operational planning associated with terrorism. Race, ethnicity, gender, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, or gender identity must not be considered as factors creating suspicion (but attributes may be documented in specific suspect descriptions for identification purposes). The activities listed as “Potential Criminal or Non-Criminal Activity” are not inherently criminal behaviors and are potentially constitutionally protected; thus, additional facts or circumstances must be articulated in the incident.
