Local Law Enforcement Takes Part In Terrorism ‘If You See Something, Say Something’ Campaign

August 29, 2020

Law enforcement professionals throughout the Northwest Florida region are participated in a week-long initiativehlighting Florida’s “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign to raise awareness of the important role citizens play in preventing a terrorist attack.

For more information on how to recognize the signs of terrorism related suspicious activity, click here (pdf).

The initiative precedes the national “If You See Something, Say Something” Awareness Day on September 25.

The Florida See Say campaign is dedicated to raising awareness of terrorism-related suspicious activity, as well as emphasizing the importance of reporting suspicious activity to local law enforcement.
The Florida See Say campaign offers the public with several outlets for reporting suspicious activity, which includes a statewide, toll-free phone number (1-855-FLA-SAFE), online submissions at the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and submissions via the Florida See Say app (Apple Store/Google Play).

    This slogan is used everywhere there is some type of law enforcement in Florida. I urge people to use caution as I “saw something and said something” and was retaliated against because law enforcement was on the wrong side of the law. While I am for reporting suspicious activity I am also, now more than ever, for anonymity. Just sayin…….

    One part of aiding law enforcement was being able to listen to the scanner. Folks knew when things were going on in their area; often those folks would call in important information that would aid officers. The public could become an extension. Now we’re in the dark.
    Now everything is secret and encoded. It’s as if we, the public, are considered the opponents. I can understand encoding some facets, but not all.
    See something, say something? Does that mean call in on your neighbor who isn’t wearing a mask or hosting a bbq and not social distancing? To report suspicious activity will get you called racist, or a -phobic or something; to report something can turn one into a villain in the court of public opinion.
    Our first responders are separating themselves. I still support aiding; but, cautiously.
