The Burlington Police Department will once again be offering the radKIDS program this summer to Burlington children ages 8-12. The kids will be in a fun and very active program that stresses safety awareness through role-play, self-defense and other activities.
The Burlington Police will incorporate risk awareness skills (strangers, public safety, etc.) with radKIDS, a program that offers defense against abduction. The radKIDS portion of the class is a 15 hours class to be integrated with safety awareness teachings.
Classes will be free for all attending residents. Donations to Burlington DARE are appreciated. As per the radKIDS organization, each child thereafter will be able to re-attend the class on an unlimited basis for free.
The course will be held at the Memorial Elementary School gymnasium Mon.-Fri. (9am-12noon) (July 20-24 is FULL), (July 27-31 is FULL), and (August 3-7 is FULL). All 5 classes must be attended. Full-time Burlington Police officers will teach the class.
Registration forms will be made available at the Burlington Police Web Site: www.BPD.org and may be dropped off at the Police Station. Limited space available! For questions, call Officers Keith Sheppard or Steve Cross at (781) 505-4919 or 781-505-4965.
