The FBI is asking members of the public to come forward if they know anything about plans for potential violent activity during inauguration week.

PORTLAND, Ore. ó As part of its preparations to counter potential violence during the week of the presidential inauguration, the FBI is asking members of the public to come forward if they know anything about plans for violent activity.

Earlier this week, the FBI warned of planned violent gatherings at almost every state capitol in the U.S. leading up to President-elect Joe Bidenís inauguration on Jan. 20.

Portland's FBI field office is working with the Oregon State Police, the Portland Police Bureau and other local, state and federal partners. The Oregon National Guard will also be assisting law enforcement.

But the agency is also asking the public to help protect the state and the rights of peaceful protesters. "We cannot be successful without the help of the American people," FBI Special Agent in Charge Renn Cannon said in a statement released Thursday morning

Anyone in Oregon who is aware of potential violence at any upcoming protest or event can call Portland's FBI field office at 503-224-4181 or submit tips online at tips.fbi.gov. They can also call 1-800-225-5324 (CALL-FBI). Anyone who knows of an immediate emergency should call 911.
