FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Thursday, May 9, 2013

Child Safety Day, free kids bike helmets included

The Market Place @ Factoria, in partnership with the Bellevue Police Department, City of Bellevue and Savvy Parents Safe Kids, is hosting a free Child Safety Day event on Saturday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The event, in the Center Court at the Market Place, 4055 Factoria Mall SE, will have information, demonstrations and activities geared toward supporting safety for kids and families.

Child Safety Day will also feature the giveaway of 50 free kids' bike helmets personally fitted by police officers. The first 50 kids get free helmets, with additional helmets being sold for $9. Kids can have their pictures taken on a police motorcycle. Police cars and fire engines will be there too.

This event will coincide with the Law Enforcement Memorial Day, so look for a police boat and other local departments with their patrol cars on display. McGruff the Crime Dog will be sniffing around too.

Also featured is Operation Child Safe; a nationwide program to provide families with a free child I.D. kit courtesy of the Bellevue Police. Learn about health, parent and family support agencies. Free health and safety information from experts will be available too.

Our goal is simple. Keep kids safe; reduce accidents, injuries and victimization of children in our community.
