Message from Burlington Police Department

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: 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.
