The Homeland Security Department, GSA and Federal Protective Service said Wednesday the "see something, say something" campaign will be expanded to 9,000 federal buildings owned or leased by GSA nationwide.

In the coming weeks, public awareness materials for the campaign will be posted in buildings and signage will be posted at FPS guard stations at each facility. An existing national network of FPS call centers will answer any calls to the phone number posted on the sign, 877-4FPS-411, according to a DHS news release.

"Homeland security begins with hometown security and every citizen -- including government employees -- plays a critical role in ensuring America's safety and security," said DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano. "Our partnership with FPS and GSA to expand the 'If You See Something, Say Something' campaign to our nation's federal buildings is a crucial step in helping the millions of people who work in or visit our federal buildings every day identify and report suspicious activity indicators of terrorism, crime and other threats."

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority of New York City started the see something, say something campaign as a way for the public and employees to identify and report indicators of terrorism, crime and other threats. It was recently expanded to partners including Walmart, the Mall of America, Amtrak and the Metropolitan Washington Area Transit Authority.
