If You See Something--Say Something!Pacific implements national campaign to promote campus safety and preparedness
Public Safety is partnering with the Department of Homeland Security to implement the nationwide "If You See Something, Say SomethingTM" public awareness campaign at University of the Pacific. Driven by the Department of Homeland Security, the campign is a simple and effective program to raise public awareness of indicators of terrorism, crime and other suspicious behavior, and to emphasize the importance of reporting suspicious activity to the proper local law enforcement authorities.
As part of the campaign, Public Safety is offering training to members of the Pacific community, which emphasizes analyzing behavior and the importance of reporting suspicious behavior. This training also emphasizes that race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation or the way one chooses to dress are not reasons to make a report. Suspicious behavior and situations, such as an unattended backpack in a public place or someone peering into windows or vehicles, or trying to break into a restricted area, are examples of things that should be reported.
Any staff or faculty members interesting in receiving the training should contact Liutenant Wayne Germann in Public Safety at 209.946.2537 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
