Apr. 25, 2013 @ 07:12 AM

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Lessons on Internet safety, illegal drugs, and crime and bullying prevention will be part of an outdoor gathering for West Virginia school children in Charleston.

More than 1,000 students are expected to attend the Operation Reach Out Community Fair on Thursday at the state Capitol’s North Plaza.

The event is part of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week and is being sponsored by federal, state and local agencies.

Free child identification fingerprint kits will be provided and there will be demonstrations of police dog units. Students also will participate in games and other activities.
