Give Dad The Best Father’s Day Gift Ever!

The Collier County Sheriff’s Office has created printable Father’s Day cards that offer dads the gift they value above all others – their child’s safety.

Two cards are available. One is designed for children and adolescents and the other is geared toward older teens. Both are free and contain a safety pledge for children to sign and present to dad as a Father’s Day gift.

Children and adolescents promise to follow several rules for Internet safety and bicycle safety. They also make other safety pledges, including paying attention to their surroundings and staying away from strangers.

For older teens, the pledge is all about safe driving. Teens who sign the Father’s Day card promise dad that they will not text message or talk on the phone while driving. They also pledge to not to get in a car with someone who has been drinking and to call for a ride home if they find themselves in an unsafe situation.

Both cards are free and available at www.colliersheriff.org/fathersday or at your local Sheriff’s substation.

CCSO wishes dads everywhere a safe and happy Father’s Day!
