The Community Awareness Program empowers citizens to recognize and report suspicious activity and enhance community safety. Developed in conjunction with the Counterterrorism Education Learning Lab, a non-partisan, non-profit organization based in Denver, the training empowers citizens to recognize and report suspicious activity and enhance community safety. It was created to complement the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign and acts as an important force multiplier for public safety officials.
