Parents Reminded About Safety Precautions

Kids playing with toys

Sweetwater County Sheriff Rich Haskell, Rock Springs Police Chief Mike Lowell, and Chief Chris Steffen of the Green River Police Department today joined the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in sharing their recommendations for keeping your children safe:

Instruct your children to always take a friend when going places and stay with a group while attending outings and/or standing at the bus stop.

Teach your children the appropriate steps to take if approached or followed. As an example, if your child grabbed, tell your child to draw attention to himself and yelling, “This person is not my father/mother.” Instruct your child to make every effort to escape by walking, running, pulling away, kicking, yelling, or otherwise resisting.

Practice basic safety skills with your children.

Be involved with your children’s activities. An active participant will have a better opportunity to observe how the adults interact with your children. If you are concerned about anyone’s behavior, discuss your concerns with the school, sponsoring organization, or law enforcement.

Remember – never leave children unattended in a vehicle, whether it is running or not.

Know where your children are and whom they are with at all times.

Know your child care providers, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and employees. Check references. For access to sex offender registries, visit the Wyoming Sex Offender Registry at and or the Dru Sjodin National Sex Offender Public Website at

Teach your children to stay alert for any suspicious incidents and report anything unusual to you, their school, and law enforcement.
