Child Keeper System: A child’s photo, fingerprints, medical information emergency contact and other necessary information for a complete record on file is provided to parents for availability in the event of an emergency.

Child Safe Program: Free gunlocks are provided to discourage unauthorized access to firearms, particularly by young children.  

School Programs: Resource officers promote safety in the school and community.  Truancy, drugs and alcohol related problems, emergency and security plans, health and crisis intervention, accidents on school property, counseling, referrals and crime prevention are addressed.

Child Car Seat Inspections: With new vehicles and new car seats many parents do not know how to properly install their car seats.  The national average for improper use of a child car seat is about eighty (80) percent.  Unfortunately, the Metro Police Department no longer has a certified car seat technician.
