The program is aimed at educating local youths on the importance home, personal, school, Internet and firearm safety, among other topics. The Safety Pup program also urges children to “say no” to gangs and bullying.
The Safety Pup program is available for school functions. The program provides items including safety literature, coloring books and gel wrist bands.
The Sheriff’s Team of Active Retirees (STARS) will also be available with Safety Pup to fingerprint children at no cost.
Parents are encouraged to have their child’s fingerprints taken for documentation purposes. The fingerprint cards will be returned to the parents for safekeeping.
