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 Radkids.

Radkids 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 currently has five trained Radkids instructors dedicated to teaching your kids the most effective safety tips.

The Marietta Police Department currently has a class scheduled for July. Openings are still available for this class, so reserve your spot now! 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. The dates and times for the July class is:

July 17- July 21, 9:00 am to 11:00 am 

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