May 25 is "Take 25", a day designed to raise awareness of the issues surrounding missing and exploited children.
The Take 25 campaign encourages parents, guardians, educators, and others to take 25 minutes to talk to children about safety. With a focus on prevention, Take 25 provides communities with free safety resources including safety tips, conversation starters, and engaging activities.
Tuesday the Cape Coral Police Department will be hosting "Take 25" events at two Lee County public libraries in Cape Coral from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. The two child safety events will be at the Cape Coral-Lee County Regional Library at 921 SW 39th Terrace and the Northwest Regional Library at 519 Chiquita Boulevard. The department is working in conjunction with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
Parents are encouraged to bring their children to one of the safety events at the public libraries on Tuesday. Cape Police will provide free fingerprinting, DNA sampling kits and child safety information. For more information, parents can contact the Cape Coral Crime Prevention Unit at (239) 242-3710.
