   I just wanted to shoot you a quick email to thank you for putting together your safety page! As the program coordinator for our youth group in Colorado, I've been looking for public safety guides for kids - with Halloween approaching, we've been putting together some trick or treating safety information for both kids and parents. After starting this project, I decided to take it a step further and do general safety and crime prevention information. Thanks again for making your page!

  The kids have been doing some research on their own, and they passed along this page for me to review:

  I thought it was a great overview of home safety, with everything from baby proofing the home, to fire safety, water safety, and even computer related crime prevention. I included it in our guides, and thought you and your visitors might like it as well. Would you mind including it somewhere on your page - ?

  It would be much appreciated. Please let me know if you get a chance to update, as I'd like to show the group. Positive encouragement goes such a long way in kids!

Thanks again!

                 Crime Prevention for Kids

     A great safety resource for kids
            Submitted by Susan & Mary on 6/17/14

   My daughter, Mary, is at the age where she's old enough to stay home alone now. Even though she's a great kid, I still get nervous! I did some research to prepare her for everything and we've been using the resources on this web page quite a bit - thanks!

   Mary did some research of her own and she came across this article about "Crime Prevention for Kids".
   When she showed it to me, I found it to be very useful and convenient. It really covers all the bases, including community safety, home safety, school safety, online safety and more. The best part is that it's geared towards kids so it makes it really easy to understand!

   We wanted to share it with you as a thank you and thought it would make a great addition to this page. Would you mind including it? I think other parents and kids will find it helpful. It's unfortunate that we have to be worried about our children even playing outside nowadays, but this information could really end up saving a life! Let me know if you get a chance to add it - I'd love to show Mary that her research can benefit others :)  Thanks again, Susan (and Mary)
