Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano has recruited hockey fans into counterterrorism efforts, as DHS has expanded the "If you see something, say something" campaign to National Hockey League (NHL) games.
"Through efforts like 'If You See Something, Say Something™', we can engage everyone, including hockey fans, in our homeland security efforts," Napolitano wrote on the DHS blog. Saying that "hometown security is the key to homeland security," Napolitano explained that the DHS public service announcement will debut next week during a hockey game between the Philadelphia Flyers and the New York Rangers.
"Fans at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia will see 'If You See Something, Say Something™' messages and graphics before and during the game," Napolitano said. "Safety messaging will be printed on the back of NHL Winter Classic credentials for staff, players, and volunteers."
A DHS statement added that "a Public Service Announcement will be read before and during [NHL] games, and campaign graphics will appear on the videoboard and on ribbon boards."
