A reminder for parents from the Bend Police Department; springtime means more kids playing outside and that presents an opportunity for child predators.  Community Policing spokesman Steve Esselstyn says they do receive reports about people trying to lure children : “The main thing to remember is with the warmer days, there's going to be more activity more people out in the streets as well as the little ones. It's a good time to reinforce: ‘You don't talk to strangers; if its someone you don't know just walk away from them. Don't get too close.’ there's more bicycles in the road more kids in the road and so this is a good time to remind the children that stranger danger is a real thing; you don't want to play with that."  If you see anyone who is acting suspicious in your neighborhood, call police. That can be something like a person taking pictures of kids or hanging out near a bus-stop. Tell your kids to watch out for strangers who ask them to find their puppy or, even these days, have a question about a popular technical gadget like a DS or cell phone. He says kids naturally want to help people so they are often tricked by these kinds of things.
