The Ottawa Police is reminding parents to frequently review safety tips for children.
Parents should teach kids what to do when approached by a stranger and if possible, avoiding walking alone.
However, the following tips are offered to children walking alone:
* Ensure a family member or caregiver knows your route and arrival time;
* Do not talk to strangers;
* Do not accept rides from strangers;
* If an unknown adult is seeking your attention, do not approach them or the vehicle;
* If being followed, go to a public place, a known residence or shout for help.
