County Police Share Tips on Back-To-School Safety

The police department's website on educating kids about safety and more.

With the start of a new school year around the corner, the Baltimore County Police Department is urging parents and students to stay safe.

On its website, the department offers advice on waiting for school buses, educating kids about safety and locking up the house before sending students to school.

A specific tip tells parents to be cautious about putting children's names on easily visible items as it may enable a potential abductor to get on a "first name basis."

For more ideas on staying safe, check out the department's website.
