ADT and NCMEC Co-Sponsor Program to Help Employees Keep Kids SafeBy Home Security Source Feb 2, 2010 | 10:25:00 amPosted in: Child Safety, Family, Home Security Tips
The U.S. Department of Justice reports that on average, 2,200 children are reported missing every single day. But the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC), ADT and host of other companies across Florida are trying to bring down that number.
A free program from the NCMEC is helping employers nationwide give their employees the tools and information to help keep children safe. The program, Prevention Works: No Child Should Be at Risk, was launched at the ADT headquarters in Boca Raton, Fla. last month.
The NCMEC program empowers parents and guardians with vital child safety information and covers tough, yet powerful child safety topics. At the ADT office employees learned how to: help prevent child sexual exploitation and abduction, practice safety skills with children, keep kids safe online and what to do if a child is missing.
The goal of the program is to inform parents, employees, friends and caregivers about ever-changing child safety risks. It also provides parents with safety training and materials to raise awareness about and help prevent victimization of children.
If you work in South Florida and would like to find out more about having the Prevention Works: No Child Should Be at Risk program at your company, contact NCMEC at preventionworks@NCMEC.org.
