Takoma Park Police will be raising awareness for missing and exploited children with the Take 25 campaign.
The event, which has taken place every year since 2007 on May 25, was created by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in honor of National Missing Children's Day and it is supposed to serve as a reminder to make child safety a national priority.
The campaign encourages parents, guardians, educators and others to take 25 minutes to talk to children about safety, with a focus on prevention.
The Takoma Park Police Department will be taking part in this campaign by having an informational table set up in the police department lobby between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. at 7500 Maple Ave.
An officer will be available to answer questions and will have available informational kits and brochures. They will also be giving out free child ID kits and offering free fingerprinting for children.
Contact Officer Carla Magnaye by phone at 301.891.7121 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
