When getting kids ready for school, many parents make sure that they are ready with books and school supplies but police say it's also important to talk with kids about stranger danger.
They say parents should talk to their kids about how to act when a stranger approaches.
Police say they should fight back any way they can to get away, such as making noise, kicking, screaming and drawing as much attention as they can to themselves.
Then try to get to a safe place where someone they trust can call the police.
The Grand Junction Police Department says that if your kids do walk or ride there bikes to school to try to do it in a group, because there is safety in numbers.
