“Clever never goes!”

Please see post from Kent Police below, regarding their 'stranger danger' message, which has been updated to 'Clever never goes'.


Whilst attending a community event in Lordswood this week a parent approached our stand and asked how they can teach their child about the dangers of wandering off and the risks associated with strangers.

Everyone is aware of “Stranger danger.” however the message has been updated for modern times to “Clever never goes!”

Take some time this summer to have a look at the website and try doing some of the activities with your children to highlight the risks.

Clever Never Goes - The replacement for Stranger Danger from Action Against Abduction

Check out the attached leaflet for more information.

The neighbourhood task force is running pop up stalls all over Medway. Keep an eye on the "my community voice" updates to see where we will be next so you can pop down for policing advice and help.
