Gulfport, Fla. – Ken Wooden, founder of Child Lures Prevention, will present a lecture on child safety on the Stetson University College of Law campus, 1401 61st St. S. in Gulfport, at 12:15 p.m. on April 17 in the Great Hall.

The event, sponsored by the Family Law Society at Stetson, is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.

“Earlier in the year, I was really bothered by all the child abduction and abuse issues in central Florida,” said Katherine Hurst, a member of Stetson’s Family Law Society. “I remembered that when I was a little girl, Ken Wooden came to my elementary school and did a child lures presentation. I still remember his name, his program, and I believe it has kept me safe over the years.”

Wooden has testified before Congress more than a dozen times and has appeared on the Today Show and Oprah discussing the importance of child safety. He was invited to present his research before the most recent White House Conference on Missing, Exploited and Runaway Children.

Wooden is encouraging Florida schools to use this program. School officials from Hillsborough and Pinellas, as well as the sheriffs of both counties, have been invited to attend the presentation.
