The Child Safety Expo held at the Manhattan Beach Farmers Market Tuesday provided information on how adults can keep children safe.
Manhattan beach Police Officer Stephanie Martin said that nearly 200 kids were fingerprinted and photogaphed during the event.
"The City of Manhattan Beach and its Police Department have always made child safety a priority in our community and schools," said Martin. "Through our Crime Prevention Office and School Resource Officer programs, the youth of our town consistently receive safety messages from pre-school age to high school.”
MBPD staged the event as part of Take 25, a national child safety campaign that encourages parents and guardians to take time to talk to their children about ways to stay safer. Taked 25 was created by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to promote an ongoing dialogue between children, families, and communities about child safety.
