🎃 Halloween Safety - Pets 🎃 • Keep your pets in a room or a crate so they don’t get frightened by visiting trick-or-treaters and attempt to run out an open door. • Black cats have known to be the target of pranksters, so keep an especially sharp eye on these four-legged felines and find them a secure bed to snuggle into for the night. • Chocolate and other types of candy can be toxic to animals. Keep ALL candy off the floor and preferably in a high cupboard. • Pet costumes can be hazardous if they restrict movement or breathing, or are made of materials that if chewed can obstruct airways or bowels. Monitor costumed pets and keep the dress-up time to a minimum to reduce stress. • Make sure dogs and cats are microchipped. If pets do escape out the door, microchips can help animal control officers and nearby shelters reunite them with owners.

If your child, or someone you know is being bullied, never hesitate to tell our School Resource Officers. Officer Malloy and Officer Cuney are full service police officers. They serve as a liaison and mentor providing support at Wheat Ridge schools for students, their families and staff alike. Speak up. Let's end bullying together. #NationalBullyingPreventionMonth

It’s a thriller! At Ridge at 38, it’s Localworks Trunk or Treat starting now!

🍭🎃Trunk or Treat starting in one hour! 🎃🍭 4 – 6 p.m. at 7101 W 38th Ave, Wheat Ridge, CO 80033. Join us for a fun and safe trick-or-treating experience for kids and their families. Plus we have a SPOOKY surprise for everyone who comes!

#NationalTeenDriverSafetyWeek Always Buckle Up. NHTSA data show that as children get older they are less likely to want to buckle up. Over the past 5 years, 1,552 kids between the ages of 8 and 14 died in car, SUV and van crashes – of those who died, almost half were unbelted.

Stop on your bike ride, dog walk or drive on over to Lutheran Medical Center where #WRCOPD are collecting unused and expired meds for National Drug Take Back. We’re here till 2 p.m. today. If you miss us drop off at 44th and Wads Walgreens kiosk.

Domestic Violence Awareness Month. No names, no fees and no judgement. Just help. National Domestic Violence Hotline: 1-800-799-7233, 1-800-787-3224 (TTY) Online chat is also available 24/7/365 at https://www.thehotline.org/

#NationalTeenDriverSafetyWeek No Alcohol. The legal drinking age is 21 years old. Minimum drinking age laws save lives every day; yet those laws are still ignored and many pay the price for it. 29% of young drivers [5 to 20 years old] killed in crashes in 2013 had alcohol in their systems, despite being too young to legally purchase or possess alcohol.

Malik: “Coming to court can sometimes be scary and confusing for kids. That’s where I come in. I’m here to help kids feel more comfortable and safe when mom or dad has to come to court.” #WRComfortDolls

#NationalTeenDriverSafetyWeek No Passengers. Peer passengers are yet another distraction – one that teens just don’t have enough experience to manage effectively.

🎃 Halloween Safety - Be Seen 🎃 • Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and, if possible, choose light colors • Choose face paint and makeup whenever possible instead of masks, which can obstruct vision • Carry glow sticks or flashlights • When selecting a costume, choose the right size to prevent trips and falls

#NationalTeenDriverSafetyWeek No Drowsy Driving. The risk, danger, and often tragic results of drowsy driving are alarming. Drowsy driving is the dangerous combination of driving and sleepiness or fatigue. This usually happens when a driver has not slept enough, but it can also happen due to untreated sleep disorders, medications, stress, or shift work.

🎃 Halloween Safety Tip: Be Smart 🎃 • Use battery-operated candles for porch decorations • Check electric cables to ensure they are intended for outdoor usage and replace them if any worn wires • Make sure porches are well-lit to welcome trick-or-treaters • Keep anything flammable away from spider webs, ghosts and other spooky decorations • Keep pets inside and away from scary visitors and the risk of escaping out the front door

Thank you to the Critical Incident Training (CIT) Directors hosting #WRCOPD officers and others from Jefferson County this week. We are so grateful to be able to collaborate with other Law Enforcement Officers and agencies within the county for this valuable training. Your hard work has not gone unnoticed.

What do you do if you're approached by a child who says they're being bullied? Address the bully and the bullying behavior. Make sure the child knows what the problem behavior is. Young people who bully must learn their behavior is wrong and harms others. Show kids that bullying is taken seriously and will not be tolerated. Model respectful behavior when addressing the problem. Talk in a calm voice and be open to listening to their responses. Work with the child to understand some of the reasons why he or she bullied. Sometimes children bully to fit in. Other times kids act out because something else—issues at home, abuse, stress—is going on in their lives. Try to understand and learn about what is causing them to feel the need to bully. Involve the child who was bullying someone else in making amends or repairing the situation. The goal is to help them see how their actions affect others. Some ideas are to have them write a letter apologizing to the student who was bullied, do a good deed for the person who was bullied, or clean up, repair, or pay for any property they damaged. Follow-up. After the bullying issue is resolved between both children, continue finding ways to help the child who bullied to understand the effects of their actions. For example, recognize and praise acts of kindness or talk about what it means to be a good friend. https://www.stopbullying.gov/respond #NationalBullyingPreventionMonth

💊Drug Take Back Day: What is it? The Wheat Ridge Police Department, Lutheran Medical Center, and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Pills and patches can be dropped off for disposal at Lutheran Medical Center’s main entrance at 8300 W. 38th Ave. in Wheat Ridge, on October 27, 2018 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. (The DEA cannot accept liquids, needles or sharps, Mercury (thermometers), oxygen containers, illicit drugs including Marijuana, chemotherapy/radioactive substances) The service is free and anonymous. No questions will be asked.

#NationalTeenDrivingSafetyWeek No Speeding. Speed limits are determined through analysis of how cars react, therefore making up your own judgement about how much faster you think you should be able to go is extremely dangerous. The faster you drive, the longer it takes you to stop. This means that the likelihood of having a collision and the degree of damage caused both increase the faster you go.
