The Third Grade Safety Belt Program is offered by the Governor’s Highway Safety Office, an agency of the Ohio Department of Public Safety, through local police agencies and sheriffs departments.
The classroom presentation consists of a thirty minute lesson, taught by a uniformed law enforcement officer. It provides the student with very positive contact with local law enforcement officers. Students will learn about safety belts through discussions, activities and demonstrations.
Upon completion of the program students will receive the Safety Belt Deputies pledge to always wear their safety belts and to encourage others to do the same. Each student will also receive special materials and additional information to take home to their parents.
This program creates a good buckle up habit for life. Additional information can be obtained by contacting the address below.
