Kindervision announces award

KinderVision, the national nonprofit personal safety/crime prevention program that provides education to protect children, teens, and young adults from sexual exploitation, abduction, and molestation, is proud to announce that the 2010 “Greatest Save” Law Enforcement Award for Florida will be presented to Flagler County Sheriff Don Fleming. Sheriff Fleming will be recognized as a guest of honor at KinderVision’s “The Greatest Save” Celebrity Banquet open to the public and being held Sunday evening Sept. 26 at 7:00 pm at the Hammock Beach Resort in Palm Coast. Additional special guests include Major League Baseball Hall of Fame members Rollie Fingers, Phil Niekro, Ferguson Jenkins, and Jim Palmer.



“Sheriff Fleming has been a strong supporter of KinderVision’s mission from the beginning and hosted our first law enforcement training in Florida. He has provided our crime prevention resources on the FCSO website and tirelessly assisted in getting our safety information into the community and area schools. We share his vision for making Flagler County the safest place in the country for kids.” Douglas Sebastian, KinderVision Founder.



“We are pleased to partner with KinderVision® and Major League Baseball. Their commitment to the safety and security of young people across the nation is to be commended. KinderVision® provides educational literature which is not only informative, but is presented in such a manner that children of all ages can relate to and benefit from the knowledge gained to prevent them from becoming a victim of crime. When we all work together toward a common goal, the safety and protection of our children, our communities become safer.” Flagler County Sheriff Donald W. Fleming
