WASHINGTON— The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is proud to continue our partnership with Major League Baseball (MLB) at the 2015 MLB All-Star Game in Cincinnati, Ohio, to be played on July 14, 2015. MLB will display “If You See Something, Say Something™” materials at Great American Ball Park, helping ensure the safety and security of fans, players, and employees at the game and at other All-Star events by reminding everyone to report suspicious activity. 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.

“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. In February 2015, 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. Campaign materials were also prominently displayed this year at July 4th celebrations in and around the nation’s capital and across the country.
