The “If You See Something, Say Something®” campaign works with partners year-round to empower and educate the public on suspicious activity and how to report it. The campaign has designated September 25 as “If You See Something, Say Something®” Awareness Day, also known as #SeeSayDay.
“If You See Something, Say Something®” is more than a slogan. It’s how we protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities. You play a key role by recognizing and reporting suspicious activity. This September, we encourage you to build awareness in your community about what suspicious activity is and how to report it.
To raise awareness how to recognize and report suspicious activity during National Preparedness Month, we invite the public to share why they #SeeSay on social media using #WhyISeeSay and #SeeSayDay.
