Student Safety Alert

Dear families,

You may have seen in the news that a Eugene man has been arrested on a charge of stalking a 12-year-old girl. Eugene Police have asked us to share this information with families.

Anyone with additional information to report is asked to contact police. This incident also offers a good opportunity to review personal safety information with your children.

The Eugene Police Department stated in a news release, “Gabriel James MacIsaac, 40, was arrested by Eugene Police [on January 8] for Misdemeanor Stalking. Officers arrested MacIsaac, of Eugene, after repeated unwanted contact with a 12-year-old female, for a period of several years.” Police added that MacIsaac also goes by the name of James Smith.

“Further investigation by Eugene Police Violent Crimes Detectives indicates the encounter may not be an isolated incident and the potential for other stalking victims exists.

“Anyone with additional information or who has had similar unsolicited contacts with MacIsaac [is] asked to contact Detective Dan Braziel at 541.682.5836.”

Additional Information for Child Safety

While abductions and other offenses by strangers are extremely rare (most offenses against children, including abduction and sexual offenses, are committed by people that they know), Eugene Police and Eugene School District 4J want to remind all families that because such crimes do rarely occur, it is important to teach children about personal safety.  Crime prevention specialists offer the following tips:

1. Explain the danger. Parents often tell children, “Don’t go with strangers.” This is vague and doesn’t help children protect themselves—most abductions are by relatives anyway! Better advice would be, “If you are lost or need help, sometimes it’s okay to ask strangers for assistance—but strangers shouldn’t be asking you for help or to go with them. You should not go somewhere with strangers unless you need their help in an emergency.”

2.  Who is a stranger? A stranger is anyone you don’t know. Make an agreement regarding who is safe to go with, and that they must say “NO!” to anyone else, no matter what! Teach your child to stay at least arms’ length away from a stranger who approaches them.

3.  Don’t be polite! Parents teach children to be “polite”; they should also teach that it’s OK to be assertive and not talk to strangers. Adults should ask adults for help, not children!

4.  Home and phone safety. Teach your child not to open the door to strangers except in a real emergency. Explain what an emergency might be, such as a medical problem or a fire. Tell them not to answer probing questions from strangers. Tell them to come get you, or to call you instead. Make sure they know how to reach you wherever you might be. Teach them how and when to call 9-1-1.

5.  Make a code word. Teach the child a code word. If a visitor comes to get them, the visitor must know the code word, or the child should not go with them.

6.  Pick their routes. Avoid alleys, wooded areas, parking lots and spontaneous shortcuts. Choose areas where anything out of the ordinary would be noticed by neighbors, business owners, pedestrians, etc. Most importantly, help them avoid isolation. Arrange for them to walk with trusted friends. Consider providing them with a cell phone so that they can call for help.

7.  Identify trusted adults. Pick stores, schools, churches, and homes of safe neighbors. Make sure your child knows these “safe places” that they should go if they need help. Remember, it’s generally safer if the child picks the adult!

8.  NO–GO–TELL. If approached by somebody who is scary, or who asks them to do something that seems wrong, a child should yell “NO!” then GO immediately to a trusted adult and TELL what happened.

9.  Teach what to do in an actual kidnap attempt. If a child is screaming, a passerby may think it’s a child having a tantrum, and fail to recognize an actual abduction. Children who are victims of attempted abduction should repeatedly yell “HELP! I DON’T KNOW THIS PERSON! I’M BEING KIDNAPPED!” Children have been saved by doing this! Be sure your child knows that resistance—yelling, kicking, scratching, biting—is acceptable under these circumstances. Depending on the age of your child, encourage them to remember details: vehicle description or model, appearance of the person involved, what was said, etc. Call the police immediately.

10. Practice with role-plays.  Have a friend participate, and have your child GO and TELL. Reward and coach your child.

Additionally, parents interested in learning about convicted sex offenders in our community who may be a danger to children can go to http://sexoffenders.oregon.gov for information about area residents designated as “predatory” sex offenders, or call the Oregon State Police Sex Offender Unit at (503) 378-3725 x44429 to request a list of all registered sex offenders living in their zip code.

Queridas familias,

Usted pudo haber visto en las noticias, que un hombre de Eugene ha sido arrestado bajo la acusación de acosohacia una niña de 12 años de edad. La policía de Eugene nos han pedido que compartamosesta información con las familias.

Pedimos que cualquier persona con información adicional se comunique con el departamento de policía. Este incidente también ofrece una buena oportunidad para que todos los padres de familia hablen con sus hijos en cuanto a su seguridad personal.

El Departamento de Policía de Eugene declaró en un comunicado de prensa (en inglés), que “Gabriel James MacIsaac, de 40 años, fue detenido por la policía de Eugene [el 8 de enero] por el acecho.Los oficiales arrestaron a MacIsaac, de Eugene, después de repetidos contactos no deseados con una niña de 12 años de edad, durante un período de varios años.” La policía dijo que MacIsaac también es conocido por el nombre  de James Smith.

“Una investigación adicional por detectives de la policía que investigan delitos violentos indica que es posible que este no sea el único incidente y que existe la posibilidad de que hay otras víctimas de acoso.”

“Cualquier persona que tenga información adicional o que ha tenido contactos no solicitados similares con MacIsaac se le pide ponerse en contacto con el detective Dan Braziel [en ingles] al 541.682.5836.” También puede llamar al Departamento de Policía de Eugene al 541.682.5111.

Información adicional sobre seguridad infantil

Aunque los secuestros por parte de desconocidos son extremadamente raros (la mayoría de atentados en contra de los niños, incluyendo secuestros y delitos sexuales, son cometidos por personas conocidas), la Policía de Eugene y el Distrito Escolar de Eugene 4J desean informar a todas las familias que debido a que tales delitos ocurren rara vez, es importante enseñarle a nuestros niños sobre seguridad personal.  Los especialistas en prevención de delitos ofrecen los siguientes consejos.

1. Explíqueles los peligros. Los padres usualmente le dicen a sus hijos: “No hables con desconocidos” Este consejo es vago y no le ayuda a los niños a protegerse—¡la mayoría de los secuestros son cometidos por parientes de cualquier forma! Un mejor consejo sería: “Si te pierdes o si necesitas ayuda, a veces es buena idea pedirle ayuda a gente que no conoces— pero un desconocido no te debe estar pidiendo ayuda o que te vayas con él. No debes ir a un lugar con desconocidos a menos de que necesites de su ayuda durante una emergencia.”

2.  ¿Quién es un desconocido? Un desconocido es cualquier persona que no conozca. Hagan un acuerdo acerca de quién es una persona con la que puede estar seguro, y que deben decirle “NO” a cualquier otra persona, pase lo que pase. Enséñele a sus hijos a permanecer por lo menos a un brazo de distancia ante cualquier desconocido que se les presente.

3.  ¡No sea cortés! Los padres les enseñan a sus hijos a ser “corteses”; también les deben enseñar que es ser firme y no hablar con desconocidos. ¡Los adultos le deben pedir ayuda a otros adultos, no a los niños!

4.  Seguridad en la casa y por teléfono. Enséñele a sus hijos a no abrirle la puerta a desconocidos excepto cuando hay una emergencia de verdad. Explíquele lo que podría ser una emergencia, como un problema médico o un incendio. Déjeles saber que no tiene que responder a preguntas indagatorias de desconocidos. Dígales que si eso ocurre, tienen que buscarlo o llamarlo. Asegúrese de que sepan cómo contactarlo sin importar dónde se encuentre.  Enséñeles cómo y cuándo llamar al 9-1-1.

5.  Designe una palabra clave. Enséñele a sus hijos una palabra clave. Si un visitante va a verlos, esta persona debe saber la palabra clave, de lo contrario no deben irse con esta persona.

6.  Escoja sus rutas. Evite callejones, áreas boscosas, estacionamientos y atajos espontáneos. Escoja las áreas donde cualquier cosa fuera de lo común salte a la visa de los vecinos, comerciantes, transeúntes, etc. Lo que es más importante, ayúdeles a no estar aislados. Haga que caminen con amigos en los que se puede confiar. Considere darles un teléfono celular para que puedan pedir ayuda.

7.  Identifique a los adultos en que se puede confiar. Escoja tiendas, escuelas, iglesias y hogares de vecindarios seguros. Asegúrese de que su hijo conozca estos “lugares seguros” a donde ellos pueden ir si necesitan ayuda. Recuerde, en general es más seguro si el niño mismo escoge estos adultos!

8.  NO-ACUDE- AVISA . Si se les acerca alguien que les da miedo, o que les pide algo que no está bien, los niños deben gritar “NO” inmediatamente, ACUDIR a un adulto de confianza y AVISA qué fue lo que pasó.

9.  Enséñeles lo que deben hacer en un intento de secuestro real. Si un niño está gritando, las personas podría pensar que el niño está armando un berrinche, y no se dé cuenta que esta sucediendo un secuestro. Los niños que son víctima de un intento de secuestro deben gritar repetidamente “¡AYUDA! ¡NO CONOZCO A ESTA PERSONA! ¡ME ESTÁN SECUESTRANDO!” ¡Gracias a esto, varios niños se han salvado! Asegúrese de que sus hijos sepan que el resistirse—gritar, patear, aruñar, morder—es aceptable bajo estas circunstancias. Dependiendo de la edad de sus hijos, ínstelos a recordar detalles: descripciones o modelos de automóviles, apariencia de los implicados, qué les dijeron, etc. Llame a la policía inmediatamente.

10. Practique con simulacros.  Haga que un amigo participe, y haga que su hijo ACUDA  a alguien de confianza y  le AVISE. Premie y prepare a su hijo.

Además, los padres de familia que estén interesados en aprender mas cuanto a los agresores sexuales que han sido condenados en nuestra comunidad y que podrían presentar un peligro a los niños pueden llamar a la Unidad de Agresores Sexuales de la Policía Estatal de Oregón al (503) 378-3725 extensión 4429 para solicitar un listado de todos los agresores sexuales viviendo en un área, o ir a la pagina Web http://sexoffenders.oregon.gov para buscar información sobre los residentes de su área que están registrados como “predadores” o agresores sexuales.
