2022 has been a whirlwind of a year that’s been full of activities, carnivals, and now the increase in beach visits now that the weather has warmed up. Parents have enough on their plate, juggling daily tasks and their jobs on top of taking care of their kids. Attention to detail is everything, but in the blink of an eye, children can wander off without warning. That’s why the Malden Police Department has released the most brilliant tidbit of advice I’ve ever seen and I don’t even have kids.
“Sometimes we attend large events during the Summer months. Before taking children to these events, take a second, pull out your cell phone and take individual pictures of each child. That way, if the unthinkable happens and a child gets lost, you have a picture of how they are dressed and what they look like that day” -Malden Police Department
Parents, you are advised to send the updated photos immediately to your local police department in the case of a child going missing for any reason. This will ensure the most up-to-date photo for easier recognition. Stay ahead of the game with a simple click of a button at your fingertips. It’s not the most wholesome topic to discuss, but it just might save a child’s life and I’m here for it.
