Tips for parents to protect their children

Bull Security offered Rekord readers some advice to parents on how to protect their children.

– If you notice a young child on their own, get involved and call the police or nearest security company or accompany them to safety. See if their parents are nearby or call police or a child welfare agency to assist.

– If you notice an adult is trying to take a child away from a public place or children’s area, if you suspect something is not quite right, get involved. By simply drawing attention to the situation, it may be enough to stop a child abduction in progress.

– Pay attention to any news and alerts of recent child abduction attempts in your area.

– Most police or security agencies provide community notifications whenever a known sex offender is believed to be living or working in a community. Learn how this information is communicated, and be aware of what possible things you can do.

– Be aware of any individual paying an unusual amount of attention to your child or children in your community.

– If your child or a child you know tells you about someone they met online that made them feel uncomfortable, report the information to police or your local security company.

– Pay attention to children or youth who seem to be in distress, and seek help when necessary. If you have concerns about an individual as outlined above, contact the police immediately so they can investigate. Provide a complete description of the individual and any vehicle they are using, including the licence registration.
