Tallahassee Police Department Press Release

Tallahassee, FL- 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.

In addition to the DEFY program and “Officer Friendly” presentations, TPD’s Community Relations Unit offers RADKids.

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.
