CMPD Implements "See Something, Say Something" Campaign

On Monday, May 21, 2012, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department and other local and federal agencies joined together to launch the Charlotte-Mecklenburg “See Something, Say Something” campaign to maintain public safety.

Here’s how the campaign works:
  • CMPD needs the help the Charlotte-Mecklenburg community by being their eyes and ears not only during large events but each and every day. CMPD solves and prevents crimes daily because of citizen involvement.
  • Everyone has a stake in public safety, if something doesn’t feel or seem right, we ask you to call 911 to report the suspicious activity. If you are not sure if you should make the call, please make the call. It’s better to err on the side of caution and have us come and investigate the situation.
  • It is critical to note that suspicious activity refers to behavior and not to the people themselves. Race and national origin are not considered suspicious activity. It’s actually seeing an act or something that appears suspicious to you.
  • As a city we could not be prouder to be a part of this great program and as a Police Agency, CMPD is counting on you to “See Something and Say Something” by calling 911.
