A message from Senior Lead Officer Maria Gray:
Recently, during a very large community event held at a local park, which numbered in the thousands of participants, it was noted by officers how often children wandered away from their parents and
became lost. So I thought I’d take a moment to remind everyone of what all children should know.
Their full name, address and parents’ full name and telephone numbers-- If they’re too young, you can place the information in their pocket when attending large, chaotic events such as festivals, carnivals, etc.
They should know to never go out to a parking lot if they get separated from parents.
They should never go into a public restroom alone.
They should be able to recognize the difference between strangers and public safety personnel. It’s a good idea to practice this when the opportunity arises. Please feel free to approach police and fire personnel and introduce your children to them and explain that they are here to help them.
If they’re lost and cannot find a uniformed person to help them, they may approach a cashier, or other employee behind a counter, etc.
They should stay in one place when lost.
Talk to your children and practice safety measures ahead of time. Thank you!!
