Crime or suspicious activity

Public safety is a large concern on NABUR and is important to us and our members. If you have a safety concern, always call 911 first to report it. Posts that assume someone is suspicious because of their race or ethnicity or messages with vague descriptions that cast suspicion over an entire race or ethnicity is prohibited. This is called racial profiling, which are ineffective and can cause more harm than help.



  Allowed?
Posting about suspicious activity using specific details, like multiple, distinctive characteristics, and describing clothing from head to toe. This helps prevent suspicions from being cast over innocent people of similar race or ethnicity. YES
Posts that assume someone is suspicious because of their race or ethnicity NO
Posts that give descriptions of individuals that are so vague that they cast suspicion over an entire race or ethnicity NO
Identifying a subject by race and sex alone (including in the subject line of a post) NO
