See Something Say Something

Massachusetts, through the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security and MEMA, and in partnership with the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association, has launched a statewide See Something Say SomethingTM public awareness campaign to encourage the public to report suspicious behaviors to the police. See Something Say SomethingTM was a program launched by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in 2010 to emphasize the importance of reporting suspicious activity, specifically behaviors indicative of or a precursor to terrorism, to state and local law enforcement agencies. The initiative highlights the important role the public and local information play in maintaining a safe environment and preventing terrorism. Remember if you see something suspicious report it to your local police department or call 9-1-1.
