Most children are probably familiar with the police officer, but how much do they know about this important community helper?
There is no doubt that it is very important that we acquaint our children with this very important community helper because our children will learn about safety, and who to call or ask for help in an emergency. The ability of our children to know how to communicate with and trust a police officer is critical and can save their lives and those of others.
Ideally, it would be wonderful to make arrangements to have a police officer come to visit the preschool or childcare facility so that children can meet and listen to them. Most local police departments offer this community service and they come prepared to discuss basic safety issues with young children. You might even be able to make arrangements to have a police dog visit -- also a great community helper!
