Video: Outdoor Play Safety Tips from ACPD

“Even playtime can be a dangerous time if kids aren’t careful,” says a new video from the county-run Arlington TV channel, released just in time for the start of summer.

(Last week was the last week of the school year for Arlington Public Schools students.)

The video, above, offers safety tips like “don’t play too close to the road,” and “never talk to strangers that approach you.”

If kids are approached or followed by a stranger, they’re encouraged to tell a trusted adult. That adult should then call police at 703-558-2222 — or 911 in an emergency — according to the video.
