SUMMER STRANGER DANGER REMINDER
With the long Summer holiday fast approaching, the police have asked us to issue stranger danger advice to you, to share with your children to help keep them safe when they are out and about.
STRANGER DANGER PREVENTION ADVICE
Here are some simple steps you can take to make sure you stay safe on the street:
- never go off on your own with a stranger, take things from them or get in a care with them.
- make sure you tell your parents where you are.
- if someone scares you, or makes you feel uncomfortable, go somewhere safe, which could be at your home, or a police station.
- remember to tell someone what has happened straight away.
- if you have Snapchat, check the settings on the new location sharing feature, SNAP MAPS, including details about how to change your settings and tips for staying safe.
