Community Services Unit presents Stranger Danger

NEW HANOVER – Stranger danger, are the buzz words commonly used to refer to the important topic of teaching children about the inherent dangers they may face as they venture out into the world.

Corporal Gail McMillan and Lieutenant Sean Jones, of the newly reorganized Community Services Unit, explained the importantance of stranger danger to eleven youngsters from the After School Karate Academy. The group learned about bullying, the differences of “good” and “bad” strangers, the proper use of 911 communications and tips to protect themselves, if they were encountered by a “bad” stranger.

The energetic karate kids even got the chance to meet Sheriff Ed McMahon, where they were all presented a personalized key-chain, coloring pages and their Junior Deputy’s badge. To see additonal photos of this visit, click here.
