LPD hosts child safety event Saturday

From Lubbock Police Department:

In recognition of National Missing Children's Day, the Lubbock Police Department will host a community event Saturday, May 25th at the South Plains Mall. The event will be held in the east parking lot of the mall near Slide Road and Olive Garden, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

LPD officers will be available to discuss child safety and provide information to parents on ways to talk with their children about safety. Fingerprint kits and child safety ideas will be available for parents. Officers will be available to assist with fingerprinting and filling out information. LPD motorcycle officers, K-9 officers and Mounted Patrol will also be stopping by throughout the day.

Since 1983, our nation has observed May 25th as National Missing Children's Day. First proclaimed by President Ronald Reagan and observed by every administration since, May 25th is the anniversary of the day in 1979 when a 6-year-old, Etan Patz disappeared from a New York street corner on his way to school. This day serves as a reminder to the nation to make child safety a national priority.

We invite everyone in the Lubbock area to join us at this events. Spend a few minutes meeting and visiting with the officers who serve in your community and most importantly, learn how to help make our children safer.
