‘See Something, Say Something’ launched

Feb 23, 2018

Gov. Kim Reynolds and Lt. Gov. Adam Gregg announced Monday the launch of a new campaign to educate Iowans on the importance of reporting suspicious activity.

The Iowa Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management and the Iowa Department of Public Safety are partnering with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to promote the “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign, which was created to educate the public on the importance of reporting suspicious behavior that could indicate terrorism or terrorism-related crime. The private sector, through the Safeguard Iowa Partnership, and local law enforcement, through the Iowa State Sheriffs’ and Deputies’ Association and the Iowa Police Chiefs Association, are also partners in this effort.

“There are things we all can do to increase the safety of our communities, state and nation,” Reynolds said. “We are asking all Iowans to pay attention to their surroundings, and if they see something that looks suspicious, to report it to local law enforcement or call 911.”
