Alliance Police Department continues the campaign to increase awareness around sexual assaults and human trafficking.

APD's goal is reducing victimization in the city of Alliance.

The non-profit The Third Talk has been working with schools and Law Enforcement to educate families regarding safety on the internet.

The Alliance Police Department and the Alliance Christian Ministerial Association are hosting the Third Talk at the Alliance High School Performing Arts Center center on Nov. 18 at 5:30 p.m.

Admission is free.

“I hope children (ages 12 and up) and their parents will join us for a valuable meeting," Alliance Police Chief Philip Lukens said. "This will be a great opportunity to have discussions with your children to make sure they are staying safe on the internet. It’s easier to help your child get over losing a toy as a result of a theft than it is overcoming a sexual assault. We all need to work together to stop sexual assaults in our community. We all need to be there for this meeting.”

Chief Lukens will give a presentation followed by the founder of The Third Talk, John Van Arnam.
