|PUBLIC SAFETY MESSAGE FOR SUMMER, 2012|
With Summer vacation just around the corner, the San Jose Police Department and the Family Violence Unit want to remind parents, guardians and babysitters to take extra care with little ones this year. Tragic reminders surround us every day:
Officers occasionally respond to complaints from concerned citizens about children left in locked cars in sweltering heat;
Over the years, San Jose Police Officers have investigated numerous drownings or near-drownings of children, some as old as 11 years of age.
Cases like those above can result in criminal charges being filed against the parent or guardian. The most tragic scenario is a parent, guardian or babysitter living a lifetime of regret over an injury or death that could easily have been prevented.
The San Jose Police Department reminds parents, guardians and babysitters to make good decisions this summer. Know where your children are. If you have to leave them, even momentarily, make sure that someone else is watching them for you. It takes only an instant to change a young life, or yours, forever.
