NCSC safetypup signIn 1955, after learning that more children die in the U.S. by accidents than all the communicable diseases combined, a nonprofit organization named Police Safety Service was formed. By visiting police agencies and schools to explore ideas for mitigating this tragedy, an effort to reduce, through prevention education, the number of children dying from accidents began.

Police Safety Service, was soon changed to Child Safety Council and then National Child Safety Council (NCSC). Today, NCSC is the oldest and largest 501(c)(3) federal tax-exempt, nonprofit charitable organization entirely dedicated to the safety of children.

NCSC provides nearly 150 different pieces of educational material about child safety, drug abuse prevention, and missing children.  These materials are used by departments & schools across the nation, assisted by NCSC's network of safety counselors. NCSC is the only child safety organization with safety counselors working to support public safety agencies and schools nationwide in their educational efforts.
