The Department of Homeland Security and Wal-Mart have announced a partnership to promote the recent "If You See Something, Say Something" campaign, which urges citizens to report
"suspicious activity." At select locations, a brief DHS video message will urge shoppers to "contact local law enforcement" if they see anything out of the ordinary. Over 230 stores began playing these short videos Monday
, with another 588 stores in 27 states to come on-board in the next few weeks.
In addition to Wal-Mart, the Department of Homeland Security has recently garnered the support of "malls, retail outlets and hotels across the United States"
for the program. The DHS has also released a video
and the following statement:
"In the coming months, the Department will continue to expand the 'If You See Something, Say Something' campaign nationally with public education materials and outreach tools designed to help America's businesses, communities and citizens remain vigilant and play an active role in keeping the country safe."
