US Government, NBA team launch All-Star security campaign

Posted Feb 15 2011 12:20PM

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Homeland Security Department and the NBA are launching a security campaign at this weekend's All-Star activities in Los Angeles, encouraging people to report suspicious activity.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and NBA Commissioner David Stern announced the partnership at a news conference at the Verizon Center, home of the NBA's Washington Wizards.

TV monitors and print materials at the All Star Game will urge people, "If you see something, say something" - a core post-Sept. 11 message.

Stern said security is a shared responsibility and the league is happy to work with the government on the campaign.

DHS recently teamed up with the NFL on the campaign.
