So, how did you do?

And more importantly, what would you do if you saw someone placing a package on a public bench and walking away? Or leaving a backpack near a trash can? Trust your instincts. If it doesn't seem right, it probably isn't. Report the suspicious activity to local authorities, so they can determine if it's harmless, or something more serious.

Did you miss anything?

How well did you pay attention in the "Toss" video? Did you notice that the "Enter" sign turns around? Or that the person in the food truck changes? If not, look again.

IF THERE IS AN EMERGENCY, CALL 9-1-1.

To report suspicious activity please contact your local law enforcement.

You can use this website or the campaign email address to inquire about partnerships with the DHS "If You See Something, Say Something®" campaign.  Click here to learn how to partner with the campaign today.
