Take 25 to Make Your Kids Safer

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - Police want you to spend 25 minutes talking to your kids about staying safe.

Officers will be at the Southridge Sports Complex on Saturday, as part of National Missing Children's Day.

Police will pass out copies of "25 Ways to Make Kids Safer."

Mike Blatman, crime prevention officer, says the pamphlet will help parents have that frank talk with their kids.

"It's important to take those couple of minutes to sit and talk with your children, explain to them things to do," Blatman says.  "And not make it just one day. It's a constant reminder."

On Saturday, children can join the My ID Club, and receive their own ID safety card. Police SWAT equipment and fire fighting vehicles will also be at the sports complex along with the DARE music machine.
