Marietta Police to host child safety program

The Marietta Police Department will host radKIDS, a national safety education program, in April.

Costing $10 and $2.61 for online fees, the class is a 10-hour course designed for children between the ages of 8 and 12.

Times and dates are 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. April 2-6 in the gym at West Side Elementary School, 344 Polk St., Marietta.

Topics will include how to prevent bullying and how to stay safe while on the internet, at home, school, in a vehicle and outdoors.

Also to be discussed will be the many tricks used by child predators and the strategies for physical resistance that children can use to thwart these possible child-abduction attempts.

The Marietta Police Department has five trained radKIDS instructors dedicated to teaching children the most effective safety tips.
