If You See Something, Say Something® Awareness Day

"If You See Something, Say Something" Awareness Day, Sept. 25

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has designated September 25 as national “If You See Something, Say Something®” Awareness Day. The “If You See Something, Say Something®” campaign works with partners year-round to inspire, empower and educate the public on suspicious activity reporting. By designating a day to the campaign, the Department hopes to highlight the importance of suspicious activity reporting.

Informed, alert communities play a critical role in keeping our nation safe. We can all help keep our communities safe by learning the indicators of terrorism and terrorism-related crime, paying attention to our surroundings, and reporting suspicious activity to local law enforcement.

The campaign is calling on citizens and its public and private sector partners around the country to lead conversations and activities, leading up to, and on September 25.

Join us in spreading the word!
