A website designed to benefit and guide young people, parents and professionals on personal safety, crime prevention and reporting has recently been launched by Leicestershire Police.
The ‘Kids and Teens’ website, aimed at children from two-years-old and above, is an educational resource area that offers advice and information on various subjects relating to the wellbeing of children and young adults.
As well as providing fun and interactive tools and resources for children and teenagers, the information zone also encourages interaction with parents, carers and teachers to open up communication on the police and to give them the confidence to speak up and make the right choices.
The information zone covers a range of topics for children and teenagers such as staying safe online, stranger danger, bullying and alcohol and drugs. There is also an area for teachers, parents and professionals to seek guidance and support.
Katie Hudson, Children and Young Persons Officer at Leicestershire Police, said: “It is hugely important that children, young people, parents, carers and professionals are aware of the online locations they can visit to obtain advice and information on topics they feel are important or they have concerns over.
“We have also utilised other resources such as ‘ThinkUKnow’ and ‘Tales of the Road’ to make the information zone as fun and interactive as possible. Ultimately, our goal is to broaden people’s knowledge on these vital subjects in an approachable way.”
For information or guidance on a range of topics, please visit the Kids and Teens zone via the force website: https://leics.police.uk/advice-and-information/kidsandteens
