Minneapolis police to unveil anti-terrorism initiative for All-Star Game

If you see something unusual during the All-Star Game next week, the Minneapolis Police Department wants you to say something about it.

KSTP reports that the MPD Monday will release the video "See Something, Say Something" as part of its anti-terrorism initiative during next week's All-Star Game activities. The video urges people to recognize signs of a crime or terrorist activity.

In addition, KSTP says the MPD plans on adding more foot, bicycle and mounted patrols in and around Target Field to combat crime during the All-Star Game. Last month, Minneapolis and Metro Transit police also said it would be stepping up downtown patrols during festivities surrounding the All-Star game, Journal Minneapolis said.

Minneapolis isn't the first city to implement a "See Something, Say Something" initiative surrounding a major outdoor event this year.

The Los Angeles Daily News says Pasadena police produced a video for the Tournament of Roses Parade on New Year's Day; and the Department of Homeland Security implemented a public service campaign in New York and New Jersey surrounding Super Bowl XLVII.

See Something, Say Something is a national public safety initiative created by the DHS. It has also been implemented by the University of Minnesota Police Department.

MPD produced its See Something, Say Something video in conjunction with the Counterterrorism Education Learning Lab (CELL), which is "dedicated to the prevention of terrorism through education, empowerment and engagement."

CELL previously produced a video for people to recognize eight signs of terrorism, hosted by NFL Hall of Fame Denver Broncos quarterback John Elway.
