When I lived in Channahon, as soon as anyone in the school heard the slightest mention of suspicious-looking cars or people approaching kids, memos were sent home immediately.

Still, it's the responsibility of the PARENTS to keep their children safe.......

#1. Teach your children to NOT talk to strangers, tell them to never even let a stranger approach them.

#2. Teach your child some defense maneuvers and escape tactics.

#3. Make sure your children hang around in GROUPS, NEVER alone, even just two kids alone can be overtaken by a criminal, there is safety in numbers!

#4. STOP letting your little girls be out in public dressed like 21 yr old hootchie-mama's going clubbing! NEVER let them run around the streets in bathing suits!


Don't EVER think "It can't happen to me or my child"! It's not just the fact that people in Channahon or in similar suburbs have a false sense of security because they feel they live in a "safe" town, so they let their YOUNG kids roam around wherever they please, but I see WAY too many little girls, from ages 5-12 running around and riding their bikes in bathing suits....Have these parents not watched ANY shows about children that are kidnapped? Little girls in bathing suits are EXACTLY what perverts and pedophiles LOOK FOR while cruising for a victim! AND these perverts and pedophiles SPECIFICALLY go into subdivisions of "SAFE" towns to search for their next victim!

So, do you REALLY need the Channahon Police to warn you of suspicious people in a van? Parents should ALWAYS be aware and on alert, regardless!
