Child Safety Notifications - Attempted Abductions

      Saint George, UT

I am petitioning all police stations, schools in the County of Washington in the State of Utah, the Mayor and all appropriate authorities to notify parents if a possible danger exists to our children.
It has come to our attention that there have recently been some reports of attempted child abductions in Washington County yet parents have not been notified.
When there is possible danger to our children we as their parents have the right, have the need to know. It is our responsibility to keep our kids safe and it is your responsibility to notify us if there is a possibility of danger.
In recent events a Hispanic male seen driving a while truck has been witnessed at several schools in the district, talking to students and attempting students to get in his truck. There has only been ONE school that has sent letters home to the parents. Other schools have had parents report similar activity but no notes were sent home.

It is your responsibility as leaders of the district, city, county, to notify anyone and everyone if danger or possible danger exists.

What we are asking is that you simply notify all schools within the district of such incidents and require that the schools send home a notice. This way the parents can take the proper precautions with their children and we can avoid a kidnapping, rape and possible murder.

      I moved to Lincoln, NE from Denver, CO earlier this year, and I can't tell you why, but I was so drawn to Jessica Ridgeway's story. It really touched a nerve in me, and I don't even have any children. What happened to her and her family was horrific, and not one child or family should ever endure what happened to her EVER again.
