If You See Something Say Something™
If You See Something, Say Something™” is an awareness information campaign to help educate the public about suspicious activities and situations that may be potential indicators of terrorism or crime. The campaign emphasizes the importance of communicating your tips and suspicions to police and transit workers.
The campaign was originally used by New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), which has since licensed the use of the slogan to the Department of Homeland Security for anti-terrorism and anti-crime efforts around the country.
“If You See Something, Say Something™” is used with permission by the New York MTA.
The Philadelphia Area Regional Transit Security Working Group (PARTSWG) is comprised of transit security and homeland security operations of SEPTA, DRPA-PATCO, NJ TRANSIT and other regional security operations.
PARTSWG is helping to implement processes and systems that allow for enhanced communications and information sharing between regional transit system and other regional security stakeholders for the purpose of avoiding terrorism and being prepared for any type of disasters. This PARTSWG education campaign was funded by a grant from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS.)
