The Park County Sheriff’s Office is pleased to announce a new child safety program titled “Kidprint-ID.” Kidprint-ID, which involves the creation of a child identification card, is a simple yet effective tool to help families maintain a current image of and descriptive information about their children.

“One of the most important and effective tools for law enforcement when searching for a missing child is an up-to-date, good quality photo along with the child’s descriptive information,” commented Sheriff Scott Steward. “Kidprint-ID accomplishes both.”

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.  And they’re fun for the kids too!

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.  Once created, the card will be printed immediately on site and sent home for parents to keep.  The information is not stored or maintained, but rather is deleted upon the card being generated. And parents are encouraged to obtain a new card for their child as often as necessary to ensure the most up-to-date information.

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.  Special arrangements may also be made for groups of children by contacting the sheriff’s office ahead of time to schedule at 307-527-8710.  To download and print a parental permission slip, CLICK HERE.  Permission slips must be completed prior to the creation of the card.

“Kidprint-ID” was developed and made available by Total ID Solutions, Inc., Wickliffe, Ohio. For more information refer to their website at

Members of the Park County Search and Rescue participated in winter survival training this past weekend in the Beartooth Mountains near Island Lake Campground. Members dug out "snow caves" and spent the night in temperatures near zero degrees. If built properly, the temperature inside the snow cave hovers at a balmy 28-34 degrees with nothing more than a candle for heat. Members awoke Sunday morning to near blizzard conditions. But they "weathered the storm" and returned with a new-found appreciation of what it takes to survive.
