For Immediate Release
DHS Press Office
The Department of Homeland Security is proud to continue our partnership with the National Basketball Association (NBA) at the NBA All-Star 2015 in New York City to ensure the safety and security of fans, players, and employees.
The NBA will display “If You See Something, Say Something™” materials in and around the All-Star venues - the Barclays Center and Madison Square Garden - that remind fans “If You See Something, Say Something™.” Materials will also be on display in many hotels across New York City where players and fans will be staying. The message is simple: if you see something that doesn’t look right – an unattended bag or package, a person behaving in a suspicious manner, a vehicle that seems out of place – report it to the authorities.
Recently, Secretary Johnson announced the re-launch of a revamped “If You See Something, Say Something™” campaign at Super Bowl XLIX, including new campaign materials with re-designed imagery, a new microsite, and for the first time in-app advertising. The campaign highlights the Department’s message that homeland security begins with hometown security.
"If You See Something, Say Something™" is a national campaign that raises public awareness of the indicators of terrorism and terrorism-related crime, as well as the importance of reporting suspicious activity to state and local law enforcement. While the campaign materials are new, our message of public vigilance is not. “If You See Something, Say Something™” is more than just a slogan, and we all play a role in keeping our communities safe. We are proud of the Campaign’s many long-term partners, like the NBA, who are committed to amplifying the message and reminding the American public to report suspicious activity.
Whether you are attending the NBA All-Star events, or watching from home in Great Plains, the mountain west, or the bustling city, we are counting on you to help protect the community you live in. If you see suspicious activity, contact local law enforcement.
