Safety was the topic of discussion Cathedral Christian Academy Tuesday as one Selma Police Department shared some wisdom about the potential dangers lurking in the area.

Capt. Billy Morgan with the Selma Police Department visited Cathedral Christian Academy Tuesday to share a presentation about safety with the students as a part of the department’s Safe Living in Selma program, an education program Morgan said started in 1977.

Morgan shared safety tips about using the Internet, avoiding kidnappers, swimming and more.

“It’s very important for us to have Capt. Morgan come in,” Cathedral Christian Academy principal Roxanne Jones said. “He shares a lot of safety tips that kids should already know, but nowadays there are so many things out there that kids can get in trouble with, especially online predators.”

Cathedral Christian Academy served as the last stop on Morgan’s visits throughout the academic year of visits to schools with the Selma and Dallas County school systems, as well as local private schools.

Morgan said he feels a feeling of accomplishment knowing he may have saved several children’s lives with the information he has shared as a part of the program.

He smiled as he spoke about adults coming up to him telling him just how much it mean to them him to alert them about the dangers out in the world.

“It makes me feel really good,” Morgan said.
