News Release: Tallahassee Police Department
The Tallahassee Police Department believes children are one our most valuable assets and in an effort to protect them, TPD provides a variety of child safety programs. TPD’s Community Relations Unit is offering another RADKids class.
RADKids teaches confidence, self-esteem and the power to make good choices. The class also covers a variety of topics to include bullying, stranger-danger, the dangers of drugs, fire and gun safety, assault prevention, abduction recognition and personal safety. RADKids teaches children to react when dangerous situations arise. It is a self-empowerment class which educates children (ages7-12) to not just react verbally, but to also react physically. The class teaches children what to say and do when a dangerous or uncomfortable situation arises.
For more information and testimonials of how children have escaped their abductors after attending the RADKids class, go to http://www.talgov.com/tpd/radkids.cfm.
As of this date, TPD has educated over 200 children in our community. The next class will be held March 3-6 from 5:30pm to 7:00pm at The Tallahassee Police Department, located at 234 East 7th Avenue in Tallahassee, FL.
