If You See Something, Say Something

About the Campaign

The nationwide “If You See Something, Say Something™” public awareness campaign is a simple and effective program to raise public awareness of indicators of terrorism and terrorism-related crime, and to emphasize the importance of reporting suspicious activity to the proper local law enforcement authorities. The campaign was originally used by New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), which has licensed the use of the slogan to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for anti-terrorism and anti-terrorism crime related efforts.

HOMELAND SECURITY BEGINS WITH HOMETOWN SECURITY

DHS partnered with the University, Miami-Dade County, and the State of Florida to help expand the “If You See Something, Say Something™” campaign across the country. Miami-Dade County used homeland security funding to print campaign materials for the University. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) manages the state’s Fusion Center which coordinates the information it receives between the appropriate local, state and federal officials.

WHAT TO REPORT

Factors such as race, ethnicity, national origin, or religious affiliation alone are not suspicious. For that reason, the public should report only suspicious behavior and situations (e.g., an unattended backpack in a public place or someone trying to break into a restricted area) rather than beliefs, thoughts, ideas, expressions, associations, or speech unrelated to terrorism or other criminal activity. Only reports that document behavior reasonably indicative of criminal activity related to terrorism will be shared with partner agencies.
