The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office is reminding you to keep an eye on your kids while you’re at the county fair this year. Deputy Shane Leeth tells the Courier it’s a bad idea to simply drop young kids off at the fair for the day. Crime Prevention Specialist Beth Baker adds that you should decide on a place to meet if someone becomes lost.
Other suggestions for keeping track of your kids at the fair include writing your phone number on your child’s arm with a liquid bandage or nail polish. Child identification cards are also available at the sheriff’s building. Children can always look for help from a deputy if they get separated from their family as well.
The Hancock County Fair kicked off Wednesday. The sheriff’s office says there haven’t been any serious problems.
