If You See Something, Say Something™

Sunday, December 13, 2015

“If You See Something, Say Something™” is a national campaign by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security that raises public awareness on suspicious activities, behaviors or situations that may suggest acts of terrorism or terrorism-related crimes.

In this ever-changing world, we are reminded to maintain vigilant and recognize when a threat may be present. Citizens play a pivotal role in reporting suspicious activities to law enforcement authorities, which may help prevent or deter an attack in places frequented by all of us.

TSA counts on the traveling public to report unattended bags or packages, individuals in possession of a threating item, a person trying to enter a restricted area or similar suspicious activities at airports, train stations, bus stops and ports. Suspicious behavior and situations must not be based on race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation or personal beliefs, thoughts, ideas, expressions or associations.

Licensed to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in 2010, the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority implemented the "If You See Something, Say Something™" campaign. Since then, local law enforcement agencies, transportation systems, universities, sports leagues, and local and state governments across the nation have become campaign partners to confront threats in our communities.

Contact local law enforcement authorities to report any suspicious activity. If there is an emergency, call 9-1-1.
