It is important to be proactive in preventing kidnapping incidents, especially in areas where such crimes have been reported. The Simulation of Kidnapping Prevention conducted by the Satreskrim Polresta Surakarta in SDII Al Abidin Surakarta is a great example of how schools can take proactive steps to protect their students.
The simulation began with a middle-aged man who claimed to be a friend of one of the student’s parents and requested to pick up the child after school. However, the child, played by one of the students, refused to go with the stranger. The teacher who witnessed the incident then approached the stranger and contacted the student’s parents to confirm if the person was a family representative or not. Once it was confirmed that the stranger was not authorized by the parents, security personnel apprehended the individual for questioning.
The tips provided by Iptu Heni on how to prevent kidnapping incidents, such as parents picking up their children on time, maintaining communication with the school, prohibiting students from wearing expensive jewelry and items, and reporting to the school immediately if there is a stranger who claims to be a family representative are essential to ensuring the safety of students.
The simulation not only raises awareness among the students but also educates them on how to avoid such situations. It is essential to encourage children to be cautious when dealing with strangers, especially those who claim to be friends or representatives of their families. The Simulation of Kidnapping Prevention conducted by Satreskrim Polresta Surakarta is a great initiative that can be emulated by other schools and organizations to ensure the safety of children.
