As the school year drew to a close, groups of kindergarten students received some special training on summer safety – training the Kamloops RCMP Detachment hopes to pass on to the community.

On June 24, 2021 the Kamloops RCMP Detachment’s Crime Prevention Unit and Kamloops Community Safety Officers attended Lloyd George Elementary School to participate in a Kindergarten Safety Summit. Some of the topics discussed included bike and road safety.

If a ball goes across the street do you run after it? Corporal Dana Napier asked the group of mostly five year olds.

No! they answered in unison. You have to tell an adult, added another student.

Great answer, replied Cpl. Napier.

With school now out for the summer, the Crime Prevention Unit is hoping to spread safety tips to parents and children across the city.

As Covid restrictions loosen and school lets out, we’re likely going to see more people out in the community, said Cpl. Napier. It’s really important for everyone to pay extra attention, use good road sense, and be aware of their surroundings.

Below are some basic tips to assist the public in having a safe summer.
