Child Abduction

How to Keep Your Child Safe From Abduction

We recommend teaching your children the following tips:
  • Ask your parents which people can be trusted
  • Never take a ride with a person you don't know
  • Yell "no" and run away when a stranger offers you treats, money or a ride
  • Don't go inside anyone's house unless your family knows them and says it is okay
  • Never open the door at home if you are alone
  • Never tell someone on the phone that you are home alone
  • Always walk where there are a lot of people (never alleys or empty lots)
  • If you get lost in a store, ask a security guard for help
