Protecting Children

Crime Prevention Tips & Services

Tips for protecting your child: 

  • Never leave them unattended anywhere, especially in a vehicle. It’s against the law.
  • Keep an updated photo and information about your child such as height, weight, eye and hair color to give to police if they should become lost or missing.
  • Report a missing or lost child immediately to the police.
  • Teach them about stranger danger and practice a plan for them to follow if a suspicious person approaches them.
