Child Safety Tips

Often times, young children aren’t aware of crime and safety. Kids are more focused on a new video game, riding bikes or playing with their friends. Unfortunately, kids can get hurt and/or become the victim of crime.

Here are some tips to share with your children:

Theft prevention:
 Keep track of possessions (bikes, games, sports equipment, and other valuables) - Don’t leave them unattended.
 Put bikes away immediately when you get home (use a cable & lock).
 Don’t brag and show off money or other valuables.

Walking:
 Always let someone know where you are going and when you plan to be there.
 Walk with a buddy or group of friends whenever possible.
 Be aware of who and what is going on around you.
 Avoid alleys and shortcuts that take you out of view.
 If harassed by someone in a car, turn around and go in the opposite direction.
 Pre-plan and know places on your route where you might get help.
 If you think you are being followed go to a public place.
 Don’t go out at night alone.
 Don’t accept rides from someone you don’t know.
 Don’t let anyone get too close to you.

Home alone:
 Know how to use all the doors, windows, and locks.
 Keep doors and windows locked when home alone.
 Keep the name and phone number of a trusted adult by the phone, so you have an emergency contact person.
 Have an adult or trusted neighbor you can go to, if you must leave the house.
