What Can You Do to Prevent the Next Mass Shooting or Terrorist Attack?

Why I SeeSay is a Department of Homeland Security campaign that stands for “If You See Something, Say Something.” 

SeeSay sounds fun but it is life or death if you do not know. Ask any elementary school principal, SeeSay is becoming standard curriculum for elementary schools.

If you See Something, Say Something

The program encourages the general public to report suspicious activity to local authorities by either calling 911, finding a security guard, or contacting campus police. 

We all have something worth protecting; our family, our friends, our community. This PSA series helps identify instances where we should “SeeSay” by showcasing a variety of situations like sporting events, school, work, and concerts where staying vigilant is vital.

Investigators discovered 23 guns, mostly rifles, and over 1,600 rounds of unused ammunition at the hotel. No one saw or reported anything prior to the attack.

You can download the SeeSay business or academic information booklets and or watch the 15-30 second educational videos to test and improve your awareness of what you should report if you see it.

Why I SeeSay is like an airport intercom announcement asking us to report unattended bags or suspicious activity. Be prepared with knowledge before something happens. 

If there is doubt, there is no doubt that yes, you should say something to authorities.

Byron Davis, a Tulsa Community College Campus Police officer, suggests that students and faculty save the campus police dispatch number in their phones in case they see something suspicious and need to report it.
