Constable Ted Heap's deputies enjoy working with schools and children all across Precinct 5. They are proud to offer several community programs designed for children of all ages.
Their Stranger Danger program educates children on how to identify and respond to potentially dangerous situations. Their Teen Police Academy gives teenagers an inside look into the life of a deputy and all they encounter while on patrol.
Stranger Danger / Hero Read
Brings a deputy to your child's daycare, pre school, or school, to discuss practical and easy to remember tips that help young children deal with multiple situations. Who is a stranger? How are strangers avoided? What to do if lost from a parent? Stranger Danger answers these and many more questions. A popular addition to Stranger Danger is Hero Read where a deputy reads a story to the children. Special programs can be set up for certain groups such as home schools, neighborhoods, etc.
Teen Police Academy
A scaled down version of the popular adult Citizens Police Academy, the Teen Academy offers a behind the badge look at law enforcement to high school age teens. This program is conducted one day a week for 6 weeks and is held within one of the local high schools. Precinct 5 runs one Teen Academy during the summer break for the general public. (To have the Teen Academy conducted at your teen's high school, encourage someone from the faculty contact them today.)
Their department is dedicated to providing this community with the tools they need to stay safe and secure. They look forward to continuing their work with the children of this community and building relationships that will last for generations to come. #constabletedheap #yourconstable
