U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said on Wednesday that her agency and the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have worked together successfully to “reduce the risk” of and “prevent” future mass shootings.
“In the coming days, DHS will expand and formalize coordination of ongoing efforts intended to prevent future mass-casualty shootings, improve preparedness, and to strengthen security and resilience in schools and other potential targets,” Napolitano said in a statement published by the Washington Examiner.
She added that her “If You See Something, Say Something” effort — encouraging citizens to report suspicious activity and behavior to police and DHS officers — will be implemented soon.
“This is a critical issue that requires immediate attention — and I look forward to supporting the president and this administration as we move ahead,” Napolitano said, according to the Examiner.
