FROM STAFF REPORTS
During this month, McDonald’s and the Daytona Beach Police Department have partnered to host a Child Safety Campaign. This campaign was initiated to promote child safety while giving back to the community.
With child safety being the No.1 priority of Chief Michael J. Chitwood, the Daytona Beach Police Department’s Citizens on Patrol will offer free finger printing to all children and child safety information. McGruff the Crime Dog, the Mobile Command Post, motorcycles and S.W.A.T. vehicle will be on hand.
“Child safety programs are needed to ensure our youth are protected from the time they are infants to teenagers getting behind the wheel for the first time,’’ Chitwood said.
“Information is power and the Child Safety Campaign is the initiative that can have a profound, widespread impact on the safety and wellbeing of our kids. Many good, thoughtful parents and caregivers just aren’t aware of the potential dangers their children face every day.”
The Child Safety Campaign will take place at select Daytona Beach McDonald’s during August from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
