Safe Passage program celebrated in City Heights

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - City Heights is celebrating Safe Passage Day, recognizing a program aimed at keeping kids safe while walking to and from school.

City leaders were on hand to honor parents and volunteers who stand at busy intersections near campuses and keep an eye on students.

The goal is to keep the kids from being bullied, harassed and intimidated, and to protect them from gang and criminal activity.

"It takes a village to raise a child, and so by these parents being out there and those kids seeing those parents are out there making sure that they're safe is building a stronger relationship with these kids," Safe Passage Manager Eugene Johnson said.

February 12 was declared Safe Passage Day last year by the City Council.
