Second Annual Child Safety Day to be Held Saturday

Loudoun County Sheriff to Highlight Recent Cases and Important Steps Parents Can Take to Keep Kids Safe

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office will hold the 2nd Annual Child Safety Day tomorrow, Saturday, August 24, from 1-5 p.m. at the Dulles Town Center in Dulles, in the exterior parking lot between Jared Jewelers and Macy’s.

The event will provide the latest information to parents on how they can best protect their children from becoming the victim of a crime. The Child Safety Day, started last year by Sheriff Mike Chapman in remembrance of Erica Heather Smith, the 14-year-old girl who disappeared on July 29, 2002. Erica’s body was found 11 days later in a grave along Broad Run Creek, Ashburn.

“We can never forget our victims, will continue our work on cold cases, and will constantly identify steps to better help parents ensure the safety of their children,” noted Chapman.

“We are proud to champion child safety issues through our programs on Internet safety, safe driving through no texting, D.A.R.E in elementary and middle schools, and by enhancing school shooting preparedness by working with our law enforcement, emergency and LCPS partners,” he said.
