Parent Safety Tips

  1. Parents should always keep
    a current photo of their child.

  2. Parents should know where their children are at all times and be familiar with their children’s friends and daily activities.

  3. Parents should teach their children to ask for permis-sion from them first before going anywhere or with anyone.

  4. Parents should teach their children to use the “buddy system” and to never travel alone.

  5. Parents should teach their children that if something makes them feel uneasy or uncomfortable, they should
    get away quickly and tell
    their parents, or a trusted adult, about what happened.

  6. Parents should teach their children that it is “ok” to be suspicious of an adult asking for assistance. Many child predators use this technique
    to isolate and distract a possible child victim.

  7. Parents should assure their children that they have the right to say “no” when they sense something is wrong.

  8. Children should know their home address and telephone number, and know how to contact their parents if there
    is an emergency.

  9. Parents should devise a
    secret code word their child can use during an emergen-cy to indicate that the child is in danger and needs assistance.

  10. Parents should teach their children how to dial “911” in
    an emergency and when
    they are speaking to the
    “911” operator, they should: tell the person their name, speak loudly, slowly and clearly; and most importantly not hang-up.

2015 Michigan AMBER Alert Awareness Week

May 17-24 is Michigan AMBER Alert Awareness Week! The state designated week was started to bring awareness about the AMBER Alert Program and raise funds to help support the on-going mission of recovering abducted or endangered children.

We encourage law enforcement, the media and outside organizations to help spread the word about this program and the essential work that it does. Below is a list of informational materials, as well as a sample PSA script and code for donation buttons that can be posted on your website to help raise funds for this important program. We also encourage you to like us on Facebook and invite your friends to do the same. The more people we have in our network, means the more eyes and ears we have during active AMBER Alerts.

All donations go to directly fund operations, officer training, technology, and community outreach efforts. Like us on Facebook here and don't forget to suggest us to friends.
