Protecting Citizens' Civil Rights & Civil Liberties
The "If You See Something, Say Something®" campaign respects citizens' privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties by emphasizing behavior, rather than appearance, in identifying suspicious activity.
Factors such as race, ethnicity, gender, and/or religious affiliation are not indicators of suspicious behavior. The public should only report suspicious behavior and situations (e.g., an unattended backpack or package, or someone breaking into a restricted area). Only reports that document behavior that is a reasonably indicative of criminal activity related to terrorism will be shared with federal partners.
