DHS expands awareness program to U.S. Open

Rory McIlroy, who was victorious at the U.S. Open tournament near the nation’s capital the weekend of June 18, wasn’t alone in getting noticed at the event.

The Department of Homeland Security launched a partnership with the US Golf Association at the event, pushing its “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign into a new sporting arena.

The agency has been steadily expanding the program into sporting venues over the last year to help ensure the safety and security of spectators, employees, volunteers and athletes by identifying and reporting suspicious activity.

In preparation for the tournament at Congressional Golf Coast in Bethesda, MD, DHS said it briefed volunteers and security personnel on suspicious activity reporting.  It also placed posters in employee and volunteer areas directing them where to report suspicious activity.

The agency has recently launched “If You See Something, Say Something™” partnerships with organizations such as the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the National Football League (NFL), Indianapolis 500 as well as in several states including Colorado, Minnesota and New Jersey, more than 9,000 federal buildings nationwide, Walmart, Mall of America, the American Hotel & Lodging Association, Amtrak, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, the general aviation industry, and state and local fusion centers across the country.

The campaign was originally implemented by New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority and now licensed to DHS for a nationwide campaign, said the agency. The program is a simple and effective way to engage the public and key frontline employees to identify and report indicators of terrorism and crime to the proper transportation and law enforcement authorities.
