THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

By LeiLani Golden - bio | email

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) – Some kids in Thomasville are learning important lessons to keep them safe this summer.

Thomasville Police kicked off their annual two-week "Safe Thomasville" program Monday.

They're teaching children ages 5 to 7 to stay away from guns, how to ride a bicycle properly and cross the street safely, and the dangers of talking to strangers.

Members of the Thomasville Police Explorers also helped teach the importance of reporting incidents.

"It's important because you need to know who to call in an emergency or a wreck," says Thomasville Police Explorers member Shaquille Thomas.

"You must know the people to call, what to say, where you're at, location, and just the basic things that can get them there to help you out."

A graduation ceremony is set for Thursday for all the children who participated this week.

Limited space is available for next week's classes. You can contact the Thomasville Police department if you'd like to enroll your child.
