“See Something, Say Something” expanded with rail security enhancements

DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano launched the first phase of DHS' nationwide "See Something, Say Something" campaign and announced a new national information-sharing partnership with Amtrak as part of the DHS' nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) initiative during a train tour that is meant to highlight the public's role in keeping our country safe and the Obama administration's commitment to bolstering surface transportation security.

The "See Something, Say Something" campaign -- originally implemented by New York City's Metropolitan Transit Authority and funded, in part, by $13 million from DHS' Transit Security Grant Program -- is a simple and effective program to raise public awareness of indicators of terrorism, crime and other threats. It is intended to emphasize the importance of reporting suspicious activity to the proper transportation and law enforcement authorities.

"Implementing a national suspicious activity reporting partnership with Amtrak and expanding the 'See Something, Say Something' campaign strengthens our ability to guard against terrorism and crime," said Napolitano. "These initiatives enable us to provide frontline security personnel with the latest information and intelligence to recognize behaviors and indicators associated with new and evolving threats."

Napolitano’s announcements came during a multi-stop train tour through New York City, Newark, NJ; Philadelphia, PA; and Washington, DC. She was joined by Amtrak Police Chief John O'Connor as well as law enforcement leaders and elected officials. Napolitano also swore in John Pistole, former Deputy Director of the FBI, as the new TSA Administrator in a ceremony at New York City's Pennsylvania Station. Pistole joined her for the remainder of the tour.

In the coming months, DHS will expand the "See Something, Say Something" campaign nationally, with public education materials, advertisements and other outreach tools to continue engaging travelers, businesses, community organizations, and public and private sector employees to remain watchful and play an active role in keeping our country safe.

The "See Something, Say Something" campaign complements the national SAR initiative - a partnership among federal, state, and local law enforcement to establish a standard process for law enforcement to identify and report suspicious incidents or activities, and share that information nationally so it can be analyzed to identify broader trends.

The SAR initiative announced is a new national information-sharing partnership with Amtrak in which DHS and the Department of Justice (DOJ) work with Amtrak to utilize the latest intelligence in law enforcement training on how to identify suspicious behaviors associated with new and evolving threats. Amtrak officers will also utilize an upgraded reporting system, made available by TSA, to refer suspicious activity reports to DHS and the FBI for analysis and follow-up.
