Please Be Aware
The jury continues to deliberate in the federal hate crime trial. We are actively monitoring social media and our physical spaces for any potential threats or concerns.
This weekend there will be traffic and road closure issues due to the Taylor Swift concert and Juneteenth activities. For more information on these events and for specifics, please visit pittsburghpa.gov →
There is a national effort planned as part of a “white unity project” that is asking for white supremacy groups to actively flyer between June 17-19th, strategically timed with Juneteenth. So far, Pittsburgh has not been mentioned in these efforts but please be aware.
Please continue to report white supremacy stickers or flyers observed to us via the Incident Report form and include a photo of the flyer or sticker.
