Palos Park Police will hand out free bicycle safety helmets to children in Palos Park. The helmets are being distributed as part of the National Children-N-Safety Program.
Head injuries and falls from bicycles are often times the main reason children visit emergency rooms during the summer months, said Chief Joe Miller in a press release. Police hope that by issuing the helmets they can prevent head injuries to children riding bicycles.
Helmets can be picked up at the Palos Park Police Department 8999 W. 123rd St. For more information, contact Chief Joe Miller at 708-671-3770.
