The Children’s Justice Center also provides resources for local families aiming to educate their children on many topics of safety. Free child and teen body safety classes start up again on Tuesdays in August at the Children’s Justice Center. Week one is for kids ages 2 to 4, week two is for kids ages 5 to 8, week three is for kids ages 9 to 12, and week four is for teens 13 and older.
