Ronan Police Department teams up with the National Child Safety Council

News from Ronan Police Chief Ken Weaver 

The Ronan Police Department, along with other agencies in Lake County, is partnering with the National Child Safety Council in a Child Safety, Drug and Crime Prevention Educational Program. 

Through this program our department will be able to provide numerous educational materials for children pre-school and older as well as materials on drug and crime prevention such as identity theft, Internet safety, and safety information for our senior citizens. These materials have been designed exclusively by the National Child Safety Council, (, the largest and longest serving non-profit organization dedicated to Child Safety in the nation.

In order to cover the cost of these materials, we will be contacting concerned business and professional leaders to help financially sponsor this program. The National Child Safety Council is a 501 C3 nonprofit organization so all contributions are tax deductible. As acknowledgement of your support, all sponsors will be listed on the prestige page of all activity manuals and magazines.

The Ronan Police Department would like to thank you in advance for your concerned support and we look forward to participating in this program.
