Waterville Police Department will offer 10 hours of family centered safety education for children 5-12 years old. RadKIDS is set for 1-3 p.m. Monday, June 22, through Friday, June 26, at the police department.

RadKIDS is brought to children and parents by the training and development of nationally certified instructors drawn from their own communities, according to a news release from the police department.

RadKIDS curriculum topics include: home, school and vehicle safety; out and about safety; realistic defense against abduction; good-bad-uncomfortable touch and more; bullying prevention; stranger tricks (including physical defense against abduction); self realization of personal power.

Through radKIDS training, children can become empowered and learn to replace the fear, confusion, and panic or dangerous situations with confidence, personal safety skills and self-esteem.

Sgt. Jennifer Weaver, of the Waterville Police Department, will be the instructor. For more information or to register, call Weaver at 680-4700.
