Hope all of you enjoyed a wonderful holiday season. When thinking about the New Year I want to share with you ways to keep the children in your lives safe.
The You Can’t Fool Me: Be a Safe Kid coloring book teaches younger children when to be suspicious of strangers and how to ask for help. You can download a free copy at www.yoursafechild.com/downloads/coloringbook.pdf
Fingerprinting all children is an effective tool. Here’s how it works:
· Parents fingerprint children and they keep the kit in a safe place at home.
· If their child goes missing, they immediately report it to the police and then turn over the fingerprint kit. The prints go into the National Exploited Children database.
· When police locate a child, they run their fingerprints against the database of The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, identifying the child and contacting their parents.

May we all have a safe 2014!
