Community Safety

Melissa Sanders| Galena

With school starting again, all parents and families should be aware of their child’s path to and from school and who they may encounter, or predators along their path. Be aware of who your children are visiting with and talking to in their everyday lives. Also be aware of who your children are friends with on social media. Parents need to talk to their children about talking to strangers, even in a small town. Just because a person has a good appearance or they are polite does not mean they always have good intentions towards you. Talk to your children about “Stranger Danger”. There are many ways and programs to help you talk to your children and keep them safe.
As adults we also have to be aware of our surroundings, who we talk to or try to help. It is sad to say that not all people are forth coming and honest, so innocent people get hurt. Don’t be absorbed in your phone walking around, look into your car before you get in, survey your surrounding area and be observant.
