If You See Something,
Say Something

The nationwide "If You See Something, Say Something" public awareness campaign was created to raise public awareness of indicators of terrorism and terrorism-related crime, and to emphasize the importance of reporting suspicious activity to the proper local law enforcement authorities.

Report suspicious activities to your local law enforcement agency.

The recent airport shooting in Florida that injured six people and killed five highlights the importance of this campaign and how imperative it is to maintain heightened awareness of suspicious activities, people or packages.  If you see something suspicious taking place, report the behavior or activity to local law enforcement or, in the case of emergency, call 9-1-1. Never try to handle or intervene in the situation on your own - let trained authorities take the proper steps.
