The Boulder Police Department will be offering Safety First for Adults from 4 to 6 p.m. on Thursdays from April 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th and May 5th at the Public Safety Building, 1805 33rd Street in Boulder.
Safety First for Adults is, a free, five-week program designed to provide safety tips to adults with developmental disabilities who live and work in the community. The curriculum of the program, which is now in its 17th year, covers decision making skills, street smart safety, home security, fire prevention and safety, and safety while riding public transportation.
Safety First for Adults is taught by Boulder Police Officers utilizing a combination of lecture, small group and hands-on activities. Participants are asked to attend classes independently as this best reflects their responsibilities while in the community and to attend all classes, arriving at 3:55 p.m. and departing at 6:00 p.m.
Students may attend the Safety First Class more than once; however, the decision to register for a repeat class is made on a case-by-case basis with the class coordinator. Please register early. The registration deadline is March 31, 2011. There will be no exceptions. For more information or to register, please call Kris Gibson, (303) 441-3332, email:
