Indiana Re-launches ‘See Something Say Something’ Campaign
Gov. Pence Encourages Hoosiers to Report Suspicious Activity

In light of heightened tensions following air strikes in the Middle East, the Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) and the Indiana Intelligence Fusion Center are re-launching the “See Something Say Something” campaign.

The campaign uses public service announcements, posters, partnerships, social and broadcast media, websites and more, to ask citizens to watch for suspicious activity and report it to authorities.

“We want all Hoosiers who see something to say something,” said Governor Mike Pence. “If you identify what you think is suspicious activity, let those who are trained respond, but be their eyes and ears so they can better protect you and your loved ones.”

To report suspicious activity, contact local law enforcement or security, or the Fusion Center at 877.226.1026 or iifc@iifc.in.gov. If danger is imminent, call 911. IDHS encourages everyone to program contact information for the Fusion Center and other public safety agencies into their phones so it will be easily accessible if needed.
