Kidprint-ID Helps Keep Children Safe
Written by Andrew-Rossi on January 18, 2018
The Park County Sheriff’s Office is offering a new child safety program.
Kidprint-ID involves the creation of a child identification card, and is a simple yet effective tool to help families maintain a current image of, and descriptive information about, their children. That’s according to Department spokesperson Lance Mathess.
The Kidprint-ID cards will be provided at no cost to parents in order to enhance their ability to quickly provide law enforcement essential information immediately, if the need ever arises. The information displayed on the card includes the child’s name, date of birth, height, weight, hair, and eye color along with a picture and thumb print.
The sheriff’s office will offer this service to parents on a set schedule beginning in March on the first Thursday of every month between 2:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. at the sheriff’s office.
Mathess clarifies that there was no single incident that triggered the Sheriff’s thinking on the need for the system. He says that it is simply a tool that will enhance children’s safety in Park County.
