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.
