Toledo police are accepting applications from children interested in participating in Safe-T-City, a summer safety program for juveniles entering kindergarten in the fall.
The first of five scheduled eight-day sessions will begin June 11. Applications are available at the city's police stations and the school where the child is scheduled to attend kindergarten.
In the program, certified classroom teachers, police officers, and other speakers discuss topics such as pedestrian, bicycle, bus, electrical, fire, and water safety and the danger of strangers.
The children learn the lessons through songs, poems, art projects, stories, movies, and classroom experience. There also is interactive involvement with an outdoor miniature city complete with sidewalks, small buildings, traffic lights, and stop signs.
