Valley agencies rally behind 'If You See Something, Say Something' motto


A new multi-agency public safety video is focusing on the critical public safety message, “If You See Something, Say Something.”

According to a release from the Surprise Police Department, the goal is to inspire and educate the public on reporting suspicious activity.

Fifteen local and federal law enforcement agencies collaborated on the video, which is centered around a tragic, but sadly realistic, scenario that plays out on camera as agency representatives explain the importance of reporting things that don’t seem right.

“The fact that so many of our Valley law enforcement partners joined together for this project highlights the critical nature of the message,” Surprise police Chief Terry Young stated. “It doesn’t matter if your community is big or small, urban or rural; everyone should be aware of the significance of reporting suspicious behavior.”

The agencies represented in the video include:

  • Arizona State University Police – Chief Michael Thompson
  • Buckeye Police Department – Chief Larry Hall
  • Chandler Police Department – School Resource Officer Stephen Dieu
  • El Mirage Police Department – Chief Paul Marzocca
  • Federal Bureau of Investigation – Asst. Special Agent In Charge Michael Caputo
  • Gila River Police Department – Officer Laura Payne
  • Glendale Police Department – Chief Chris Briggs
  • Goodyear Police Department –Chief Jimmy Rodriguez
  • Homeland Security Investigations – Special Agent in Charge Scott Brown
  • Mesa Police Department – Chief Ken Cost
  • Paradise Valley Police Department – Chief Pete Wingert
  • Peoria Police Department – Chief Art Miller
  • Phoenix Police Department – Detective Luis Samudio
