There is the British expression "hue and cry" which seems to be also a formal legal expression as in "raise the hue and cry." i take it to mean sound the alarm vocally by shouting. What say you Britishers in the crowd?
"Hue and cry" was once a legal requirement in England. If something criminal was afoot, the good citizens were to "make hue and cry" in order to capture the miscreant.
