Community and Sheriff Partnerships
Red Ribbon Campaign 2018
The Kane County Sheriff's Office is recognizing Red Ribbon Week during October 23 – 31, 2018. The red ribbon is a symbol of an intensive community campaign to raise awareness against and combat alcohol, tobacco, and drug abuse in young adults across the country.
The National Family Partnership (NFP) sponsors Red Ribbon Week, and their 2018 campaign theme is Life is Your Journey, Travel Drug Free. The theme was selected by the NFP from student submissions from across the country. The 2018 theme helps educate today's youth on the serious nature that drug abuse has in the family and the community at large.
During Red Ribbon Week, Kane County Sheriff's deputies assigned to the community outreach programs will educate and mentor school age children on the benefits of developing healthy, drug free, and, active life-styles. Sheriff's Office deputies will wear and proudly display the Red Ribbon as a symbol of its zero tolerance commitment to drug abuse.
Walk to School
The Kane County Sheriff's Office will be in villages and municipalities across the county to participate in Walk to School Day on Wednesday, October 10, 2018. Schools, community health groups, and public safety all work together in order to develop safe school routes. On this day, adult led groups encourage safe routes, safe passage to school, and healthy lifestyles. This is a community-oriented event that reminds everyone about the benefits of walking to school, the need for safe routes, as well as driver awareness in and around school zones.
Drivers ~ be attentive, slow down, and use caution. Let us each take these appropriate actions to ensure that children arrive and return safely from school.
