From time-to-time, OCAR may receive information regarding an unsettling encounter or a suspicious circumstance that occurred. If ever you feel unsafe, please call 9-1-1 immediately. We’d also like to encourage you to contact your local law enforcement agency to report any suspicious activity or persons. Trust your instincts—if something feels “off,” make the call. Sometimes OCAR receives questions about why we haven’t or did not broadcast information to our members. This can be a complicated issue which we evaluate seriously. We want to ensure that you are informed—with reliable information that empowers you. OCAR has established relationships with local law enforcement, and we look to our law enforcement partners to provide us with the details and the direction when to broadcast certain types of information. Please make sure you read the bi-weekly What's Up at OCAR for any safety alerts. This email is delivered to all members every-other Monday.
