illi News/10135502

As many new college freshmen are getting ready for "move-in" day on college campuses across the nation, the Naperville Police Department wants to be sure that parents are sending off their young adults safely. The Department is offering a presentation on Thursday, August 5, 2021, at 7 p.m. entitled, "College Safety Guide for Parents and Students," and encourages all freshman and their parents to participate. Crime Prevention Specialist Mary Browning states, "This is a great opportunity to learn how to be safe while on campus and away from home. We live in a very safe community and because of that our children can develop a false sense of security. This class will help students learn strong crime prevention strategies and make them aware of some of the dangers of campus life and how to safeguard themselves."

The presentation has two distinct focuses. The first part of the program will educate students and parents about drugs, alcohol, and the law. Browning adds, "Students may be subjected to temptations and challenges that they haven't yet been taught how to deal with. This class will talk frankly about making choices and understanding what the consequences may be; legally, personally, and academically."

The second portion of the presentation will concentrate on personal safety. Browning wants students to start their college careers armed with the necessary knowledge and skills to keep themselves and their property safe. "We want students to learn how to protect themselves and to know how to avoid being a victim of crime."
