MOHSEP enables terrorism prevention through threat assessments, alert networks, and surveillance efforts to directly support the local community in preventing all identified hazards. Ongoing coordination activities include understanding, recognizing, and preventing crimes and other activities that are precursors or indicators of terrorist activity and violent extremism. These strategies position the whole community to recognize and prevent imminent threats while allowing MOHSEP the ability to collect, analyze, and further disseminate intelligence. In order to accomplish this, law enforcement, intelligence, homeland security professionals, and other partners must play a prominent role in building prevention capabilities. Crime Stoppers encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and apathy.
See Something, Say Something

The campaign partners with state and local governments, federal agencies, major sports leagues, transit stations, entertainment venues, private businesses, places of worship, nonprofits, and many other types of organizations. These partnerships have been critical to the success of the campaign. Learn how organizations can participate in the campaign.
