"If You See Something, Say Something"
The US Department of Homeland Security has initiated its "If You See Something, Say Something" campaign to help educate restaurants on how to identify suspicious activity and what to do in the event that you become aware of suspicious activity. Improved awareness can prevent businesses from being used in illicit or terrorist activities. Be aware. Your effort makes a difference.
