From YouTube: Police Safety Tips: Kids Home Alone


Arlington is a safe community. But when it comes to your kids, you can't be TOO safe. If your kids are spending time home without you, make sure they know these safety rules!

Do not have friends over without an adult in the house to supervise.
Keep your doors closed AND locked when you're home alone.
Do not open the door for anyone even if you know the person.
Don't answer the phone and never tell anyone you're home alone.
Make sure you have a trusted neighbor you can go to if you need help and a list of emergency phone numbers to call.
And remember, never hesitate to call the Police if you think you spot suspicious activity. Call 9-1-1 for emergencies, and for non-emergencies call 703-558-2222. For more Safety tips, go to
