Secretary Napolitano has teamed up with the nation's largest retailer, Walmart, to promote the “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign. Beginning today, more than 230 Walmart stores will play this video at select checkout lanes. In the coming weeks, a total of 588 stores will show the video featuring Secretary Napolitano reminding shoppers to contact local law enforcement to report suspicious activity.
“Homeland security starts with hometown security, and each of us plays a critical role in keeping our country and communities safe” the Secretary said today, adding “I applaud Walmart for joining the ‘If You See Something, Say Something’ campaign. This partnership will help millions of shoppers across the nation identify and report indicators of terrorism, crime and other threats to law enforcement authorities.”
The “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign is our way of engaging and empowering the public and key front line employees to take an active role in identifying and reporting indicators of terrorism, crime, and threats. As the busy holiday shopping season ramps up, this video will serve as a dynamic way to encourage the public to remain vigilant and play an active role in keeping our country safe.
