‘If You See Something, Say Something’ Awareness Day Boosts DHS Security Message

'If You See Something, Say Something' Awareness Day Boosts DHS Security Message Homeland Security TodayA crucial part of an agency’s onsite security and safety strategy is their employees. When employees are educated on the importance of situational awareness and equipped with the steps for how to report suspicious activity, they can serve as force multipliers for strengthening an agency’s security initiatives. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s “If You See Something, Say Something®” campaign helps facilitate employee awareness and reporting through Public Service Announcements and educational materials available to agencies.

The “If You See Something, Say Something®” campaign raises public awareness of the indicators of terrorism and terrorism-related crime, as well as the importance of reporting suspicious activity to law enforcement. The campaign works with public and private sector partners year-round and has decided to host its first national Awareness Day on Sept. 25 to further highlight the campaign’s important message and equip citizens with educational materials on how to recognize suspicious activity.
