Safety First for Adults is a free, five-week program is designed to provide safety tips to adults living with cognitive or developmental disabilities. The course is taught by Boulder police officers utilizing a combination of lectures, small groups and hands-on activities. The program curriculum covers decision-making skills related to using public transportation, home security, fire safety and the proper way to contact police. Participants are encouraged to attend classes independently, as this best reflects their responsibilities while functioning in the community. However, if a student needs or desires additional support from a parent or caregiver, this will be supported.
