If You See Something Say Something

If You See Something Say Something

If you see something suspicious taking place on campus, report that behavior or activity to the UMPD, or in the case of emergency call 9-1-1. Factors such as race, ethnicity, national origin, or religious affiliation alone are not suspicious. You should report only suspicious behavior and situations (e.g., an unattended backpack in a public place or someone trying to break into a restricted area) rather than beliefs, thoughts, ideas, expressions, associations, or speech unrelated to terrorism or other criminal activity.

If your department is interested in a "See Something, Say Something" poster to display, please contact DEM. The posters are available in English and Somali.
