Child Safety


A colour coded ‘wrist band’ scheme operates in Clacton, and is free to the public – in a typical season our seafront team help to reunite almost 90 missing children with their relieved parents!

Children are given a corresponding wrist band which makes the task of re-uniting lost children with their family a lot easier. Wrist bands can be obtained from the Beach Patrol Office near the Martello Tower.
