Lockport, N.Y. (WKBW release) -- Niagara County Sheriff James R. Voutour announced Monday he is organizing the annual child safety program for the children of Niagara County.

Students K-4th grade in Niagara County Schools will receive age-appropriate safety manuals which will be handed out through the School Resource Officer Program.

The material will offer information about topics of concern; such as general child safety, dangerous people, bicycle safety, internet safety, drug awareness, violence prevention, bullies and senior safety. Sheriff Voutour has reviewed this material and approved the content. Local businesses have helped cover the cost of the materials to help get the message to all children and parents within the Niagara County school system.

The National Child Safety Council is offering this program designed specifically for elementary children. Letters will be sent to business and industrial leaders, asking for additional support of the program.
