Abbotsford Police parent forum addresses three topics

Session on Tuesday, Oct. 1 at Matsqui Centennial Auditorium

The Abbotsford Police Department’s youth section holds a forum on Tuesday, Oct. 1 for the parents of middle and high school students.

The free Your Kids Matter forum starts at 6:30 p.m. at Matsqui Centennial Auditorium (32315 South Fraser Way) and addresses the topics of vaping, mental health and the APD’s It’s a No campaign.

The campaign warns kids that they could be asked to send compromising photos of themselves by both friends and strangers.

It offers them an “It’s a No” meme that they can upload to their phones or other electronic device to send in response to any such request. The meme is available online at itsano.ca and on posters at school presentations.

The forum includes experts speaking on each of the topics and a question-and-answer session.

To register for the upcoming event, visit eventbrite.ca and search “Your Kids Matter.”
