A new children’s website was launched recently by West Midlands Police called www.safestreet.info aimed at providing 5 – 10 year olds with:
- An understanding of the role of police officers and police staff
- Safety information
- Health messages
- Citizenship advice
Some of the key messages on the site are:
- What is anti-social behaviour and how it affects people
- The role of police officers
- Travelling safely
- Stranger danger
- Support organisations
- Fire safety
- Crime prevention
The site has been designed to provide children, parents and Police officers with an opportunity to discuss safety in a colourful and fun learning environment.
If you are a member of staff working with children or a parent yourself, you may wish to visit the site, which includes quizzes, scenarios and videos for children to learn about becoming a safe and good citizen.
