Kids at White Night
White Night is a great event for kids, but it’s important to have a plan in place in case you get separated. Even if you’re familiar with the precinct, crowds can make it difficult to keep a constant eye on your little ones.
Before the event, talk to your children about what they should do if they can’t find you. Tell them to look for a White Night staff member – preferably a security guard – or go to the nearest Service Hub.
When you arrive, pick up a wristband for your child at any of our Service Hubs. Write your mobile number clearly on the wristband (do not include your name) so that if you and your child become separated, White Night staff will be able to reunite you as quickly as possible.
This is also a good opportunity to show your child what White Night staff and security guards look like so they can find them if they need to. Take a photo of your child at the start of the event so you can show White Night staff if necessary.
What to do if your child is lost
If you can’t find your child, speak to a security guard or another White Night staff member immediately. They will coordinate with the police and all other White Night staff to look for your child. Losing your child can be distressing, but it’s important to follow any instructions from staff so that you can be reunited with your child as quickly as possible.
What to do if you find a lost child
If you find a child who is lost, talk to them and reassure them for a few minutes in case their parent or caregiver is nearby and searching for them. If they are not reunited within a few minutes, please notify a security guard or other White Night staff member. If possible, send someone to get help and stay with the child where you found them until official help arrives.
