BPD radKIDS Week


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 hour 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 Marshall Simonds Middle School gymnasium Mon.

– Fri. (9am-12noon) July 19-23 or July 26-30, 2021. Full time Burlington Police

officers will teach the class.


Registration forms can be picked up at the police station lobby or printed out here;
