The Marietta Police Department is dedicated to protecting its citizens in every way possible. While our primary focus is on finding ways to fight and prevent crime, we are also dedicated to finding ways that will educate and protect our youth.  To that end, the Marietta Police Department is involved in protecting children through a program called Rad Kids.  

Rad Kids is a safety education program that emphasizes personal empowerment. The class is a 10-hour course designed for children between the ages of 8 and 12 years old.  Topics covered include: how to prevent bullying, and how to stay safe while on the internet, at home, at school, in a vehicle, and outdoors.  In addition to these issues, we will discuss the many tricks used by child predators and the physical resistance strategies that kids can use to thwart these possible child abduction attempts.  

The Marietta Police Department is proud to announce we will be co-hosting the next Rad Kids course with the Cobb County Police Department. The first class for this 5 week course will begin Tuesday evening, April 16th at 5:00PM.  Openings are still available, please reserve your spot today!  The cost for this class is $10. Please sign up your own kids or refer us to parents with kids from ages 8 to 12.  

April 16, 23, 30 May 7, 14/ 5pm to 7pm 

The classes will be held in the gym at West Side Elem (344 Polk St.)

Parents interested in signing up their children should visit https://8-12yearoldclass.eventbrite.com


If you have any questions regarding Rad Kids, please contact Officer Paul Hill via email at: phill@mariettaga.gov.  Additional info available at http://www.radkids.org.
