For Immediate Release: Halloween Safety Tips for the Family during Crime Prevention Month
Amite, LA – Crime Stoppers of Tangipahoa would like to wish everyone a happy and safe Halloween. Crime Stoppers urges parents to have a Trick-or-Treat route plan and asks them to follow a few simple tips to protect their children. The National Crime Prevention Council suggests “Playing it Safe on Halloween” and offers the following “Pointers” for parents and children.
Amite, LA – Underage drinking has become widespread problem in all of our communities. Alcohol is the number one drug of choice among our teenagers and young adults and alcohol related car crashes have become the number one killer of teenagers in the United States. It is tragic to say, but true, that most of us know someone or know of someone personally that has died or been killed due to their own alcohol abuse or due to the alcohol abuse of someone else. Over the years, I personally have lost family and friends due to alcohol related driving incidents and have had to experience the pain and loss of those loved ones. This loss is tragic, senseless, painful, and life-changing to those left behind - especially when it is the loss of a young person.
For Immediate Release: Keeping Your Family Safe on the Internet during Crime Prevention Month and All Year Long
Amite, LA – The Internet has become a wonderful tool for all of us to use when searching for information, staying in touch with family and friends, for entertainment purposes, as well as homework and educational uses. The Internet however can also be a very dangerous place for children to explore on their own, without rules, and without adult supervision. As parents or caregivers, it is your responsibility to educate yourself about the Internet and communicate its potential dangers to your child. In most cases, our children and youth know more about the Internet than we do – so your knowledge of it is important.Amite, LA – October is the month that was designated in 1984 as National Crime Prevention Month by the National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC).
