Project "SAFE PLACE":
Project "SAFE PLACE" is a cooperative effort between the Alton School District, several local businesses throughout the Alton/Godfrey area, the Alton Police Department and the Madison County Sheriff's Department. The primary focus of the program is for all partners to keep a watchful eye out for our kids as they walk, bicycle or ride to and from school. Businesses participating in Project "SAFE PLACE" agree to watch for children in trouble, offer their business as a safe haven, and call the police or sheriff's department should the need arise. Business participants display a bright yellow "SAFE PLACE" sign for easy identification.
