See Something, Say Something!
Let's put a stop to the killingStop Illegal Gun Violence”, “If you see something, say something!”. "Its only snitching if your involved.”— Dr. h.c. Bernard Wh. Jennings
10:00am, Thursday, June 17, 2021, at our offices:
Biscayne Gardens Chamber of Commerce
115 NW 167th Street, 1st Floor North Miami Beach.
Due to the rash of occurrences of gun violence in Miami-Dade County the Biscayne Gardens Chamber of Commerce has partnered with local municipalities and businesses to sponsor an awareness campaign to encourage residents to embrace, “If you See Something, Say Something” and call 305-471-TIPS to report all Illegal Weapons suspected in our communities. The campaign consists of 24”X18” Yard Signs that local law enforcement will be engaging with residents in face to face conversation offering to place a sign in the front of their home.
“We are teaming up with area businesses and the City of Miami Gardens, the City of North Miami and the City of North Miami Beach and the Biscayne Gardens Brighter Future PAC to ensure that everyone knows to call 305-471-TIPS (8477) to report illegal activity.” Said Dr. h.c. Bernard Wh Jennings, President & CEO. The Chamber is commissioning the design and delivery of 24X18 bandit signs to be placed arbitrarily throughout North Miami Dade. The signs read, “Stop Illegal Gun Violence”, “If you see something, say something”. We intend to place over 5,000 signs. The number enables anonymous phone calls to report illegal gun activity.
People are aware of criminal activity in our communities. “It is time to stop the silence, remove the fear and call 305-471-TIPS.”, "Its only snitching if your involved", Jennings said. The call is anonymous and there are financial awards available for information that leads to an arrest.
