“We’re hoping this event will engage, educate and empower many of our community neighbors to incorporate a healthier lifestyle,” said Michele Jordan, leader of Reedsville Troop 40350.
“One promise, one community” will be presented through a healthy promise initiative and funded through a mini grant the scouts received to promote a healthier lifestyle to the public.
Lewistown Police Department will be participating along with other agencies. Officer William Roberts will conduct bicycle safety checks and helmet fittings, along with a fun bike derby for the children to ride. Come join the fun and look for us on the Rec Park basketball courts.
The Borough of Lewistown will reinstate regular street sweeping and maintenance schedules as of 12:00 AM on April 1, 2014. All parking Restrictions and Regulations, as posted by local signage, which were suspended from November 25, 2013 through March 31, 2014 will again become effective and enforced.
Investigators over the past two days, have conducted interviews and reviewed videos of the incident captured by local security cameras and have concluded the witnesses misinterpreted what had in fact occurred. No luring of the child did occur and police are not looking for the previously described person or vehicle. Police are encouraging people to report any suspicious activity involving children so that it can be investigated.
Although this incident did not occur as originally reported, Lewistown Police are asking the public to use this opportunity to reinforce safety recommendations from the National Safety Council for young children including:
- Children should first check with parents or guardians before going anywhere
- Telling children not to ever accept rides in vehicles when not with family members
- Encourage children to tell a trusted adult anytime something has scared them
- Children should walk with a friend whenever possible and use the buddy system
- Teaching children to say “no” to any adult who is making them feel uncomfortable
