Take 25 To Help Keep Our Children Safe!

Get involved in Take 25, a national safety campaign about child safety

Every year in the United States, thousands of children are reported missing or abducted. Though the vast majority are often located quickly, this continuing problem underscores the need for parents, communities, and law enforcement to take an active role in showing children how to be safe. The Take 25 campaign, created by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC), encourages parents and guardians to take 25 minutes on May 25, National Missing Children’s Day, to talk to their children about staying safe.
