If You See Something, Say Something

If you see something, say something. This hallmark slogan is a nationwide campaign launched by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Justice's Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting Initiative. 

"If You See Something, Say SomethingTM" is based on the concept that the more observant and involved individuals are in their daily lives, the less likely crime will occur. If we watch and report suspicious activity, we reduce the areas where criminals feel comfortable committing crimes, resulting in safer towns and cities across the nation.

Report suspicious activity by calling 9-1-1. Describe specifically what you observed, including:

  • Who or what you saw;
  • When you saw it;
  • Where it occurred; and
  • Why it's suspicious

Oregon Office of Emergency Management has partnered with DHS to support public awareness about this important terrorism safety message. A variety of print materials and public service announcements are available for Oregon state agencies, emergency management partners, 9-1-1 Public Safety Answering Points, local law enforcement, sports arenas and the hospitality industry to download and use.
