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 (defense against abduction) is a
15-hour class to be integrated with safety awareness teachings.
Due to a generous grant from Lahey Clinic, classes will be free for all
attending residents. Donations to the Burlington D.A.R.E. Program 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 Memorial Elementary School gymnasium
Monday – Friday (9am-12noon) July 14-28, July 21-25 and July 28-August
1. All 5 classes must be attended. Full time Burlington Police officers will
teach the class.
Registration forms will be made available at the Burlington Police Web Site:
www.bpd.org and may be dropped off at the Police Station. Limited space
available! For questions, call Officers Keith Sheppard or Steve Cross at
(781) 505-4919 or 781-505-4965.
