A SERENITY ACTIVITY PACKS-"ASAP" BAGS
Supporting our Children by Equipping our Law Enforcement personnel
GCCWB is helping implement the distribution of A Serenity Activity Pack or "ASAP bag" to all of our Guadalupe County Law Enforcement agencies. Nearly 300 patrol vehicles will be equipped with an "ASAP Bag", so when officers encounter traumatized children during traffic stops, DWI’s, domestic violence calls, CPS removals, house fires, etc., the officer can open the bag and give the child an item/s from the bag to include an age-appropriate toy, a soft warm blanket, a bottle of water, a snack size bag of goldfish crackers, etc. In the event the child is being removed from the residence or scene and they are carrying their clothes in a trash bag, the officer may give the child the duffle bag and the Guadalupe County Child Welfare Board will obtain a replacement bag for the officer through day1bags. The project was created to give officers a tool to help build trust with the traumatized children they encounter daily and to give children something positive and comforting to focus on during a traumatic event.
