Safety Tips for Parents

  • Maintain current ID, including photograph, video and fingerprints.
  • Maintain current addresses and phone numbers of your children's friends.
  • It is important to keep all doors and windows locked.
  • Do not advertise your child's name on clothing, school supplies or backpacks.
  • Seek alternatives to leaving children alone in the home, on the street or in the car.
  • Children should know their phone number and how to use a pay phone without money to call home or 911.
  • Be a role model to your children. Settle arguments with words, not violence.
  • By promoting your child's self-esteem and letting them know that you love them for who they are, you will teach them the self-confidence they need to avoid drugs and crime.
  • Listen to your children. Encourage them not to keep secrets from you.
  • Your child should know that certain people could be helpful, such as Police Officers, mothers with children, and store clerks. These people can assist them if you become separated.
