St. George Police participate in community program encouraging kids to ‘turn life on’

ST. GEORGE – If you are looking for a fun activity to keep your children busy and safe this summer, the St. George Police Department may have just the solution after partnering up with Play Unplugged Utah and offering a “Caught Ya” Badge.

badge1Children can earn this particular badge in one of three ways:

  • Get caught being safe – riding a bike with a helmet, using a cross walk, helping someone in need
  • Call the police department for a home security inspection: 435-627-4301
  • Ride your bike as a family on the Mayor’s Loop. Take a photo of yourselves wearing your bike helmets and having a fun time | The Mayor’s Loop is the multi-use paved path that starts at the Confluence Trailhead off of Convention Center Drive in St. George

The Play Unplugged program is designed for parents to choose which Brag Badges to work on with your kids. When your child completes the activity, go to the sponsoring business to pick up the badge.

Each badge has points called “brags.”

Families can create rewards your kids “purchase” from their earned brags. A reward can be anything from money to a family vacation; you decide.

Help your kids willingly and enthusiastically stay active throughout the summer without coming to you constantly saying “I’m bored.”
