Campaign Urges Citizens To Be Vigilant

Posted:

SPRINGFIELD-----In the wake of the attacks at a subway and airport in Brussels Belgium that left several dead, the Springfield Mass Transit District is reminding the public to stay vigilant through the ongoing “See Something, Say Something” campaign.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security, informed, alert communities play a critical role in keeping our nation safe. "If You See Something, Say Something™" engages the public through awareness: building, partnerships, and other outreach.

Local law enforcement has been asked to increase their presence at SMTD’s downtown transfer center, and operators and staff are being asked to increase awareness on vehicles and at stops and facilities throughout the district.

“See Something, Say Something” encourages the public to report suspicious activity. To report suspicious activity, contact your local law enforcement agency. Describe specifically what you observed, including:

* Who or what you saw;
* When you saw it;
* Where it occurred; and
* Why it's suspicious.
* If there is an emergency, call 9–1–1.
