Operation Kidsafe event set for motorcycle dealership

An Operation Kidsafe safety event is set for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 14 at the Grand Junction Harley-Davidson, BMW and KTM at 2747 Crossroads Blvd.

The Operation Kidsafe program uses digital systems to capture the fingerprints and photos of children. The information is then printed and handed to parents for safekeeping. There’s an area on the document for parents to update with current photos.

Parents participating in the free event will receive an Amber Alert ready document ready to provide to law enforcement in the event of an emergency as well as tips for developing a family safety action plan.

The event also will include an open house featuring 2020 motorcycle models, demonstration rides, a bike wash, barbecue and prizes.
