Well, summer vacation is almost over and it’s back to the books on Aug. 18. This week is a perfect time for you as a parent to start talking to your kids about safety.
So let’s review what you need to do:
Let’s not forget other measures that adults must heed, such as watching your speed in school zones and wearing seat belts at all times. It’s the law now. Remember, adults are the role models for their children.
In the next few weeks, I will be providing you with tips on topics such as bullying and cyber-bullying. Our Youth Crime Watch program in the schools will be implementing and teaching our children again to help them stay safe and alert in their schools. As always you can contact our office for a variation of brochures on different topics.
On another note, a crime that is happening across the county, one which I find totally crazy, is the theft of FPL meters. Those new fancy meters are being stolen to be placed in foreclosed houses where “squatters” are living and in “grow houses.” I have contacted Florida Power Light for solutions to this theft since several of our Neighborhood Watch groups have contacted me on it. Therefore if you get home and have no power, check your meter and call FPL (800-468-8243). And if your meter was stolen, make a police report.
