Cherry Hill Police issue back-to-school safety reminders Back to School.png
As school begins, the Cherry Hill Police Department reminds everyone to use caution on local roads, particularly around buses and pedestrian traffic. We take the safety of our children and our schools very seriously. Throughout the school years, patrol officers check in with our schools and maintain a visible presence in them. As you go through the year, be sure to speak with your children about school safety.
Remind your children:
-- To travel in groups and avoid strangers;
-- To walk on sidewalks as much as possible;
-- To cross the street only at a corner or a designated crosswalk;
-- To stay on school grounds at all times, unless they have your permission;
-- To report suspicious people and incidents to police and school officials.
Resources for other school safety topics, including bullying, cyber bullying and internet safety, can be found online through the National Crime Prevention Council, Cherry Hill Public Schools, and Scholastic.com. On behalf of Township Council and the Cherry Hill Police Department, I wish everyone a very safe and successful 2014-15 school year.
