Bumper Stickers Helpful To Pedophiles

They are stickers that are becoming more and more popular on the back end of vehicles owned by families, and police say those stickers could be putting families at risk.

You've probably seen those little stick-figures on the back of cars representing a dad, mom and however many kids may be in that family.
Police say this could be very helpful to a pedophile.

"Now you add in there the bumper sticker, where your child goes to school. They now have a geographical area of where you live, based on that single bumper sticker," says Sgt. Mark Marino of the Gilbert, AZ Police Department.

Police say many more of those stick-figure families are including the names of children and that makes matters worse.
A criminal could have the first name of a young child, making it possible for that criminal to approach the child.
