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 (sample attached) 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.
Parental permission is required at the time the card is produced. We recommend that parents print off a permission slip, sign it and bring it with them when the child’s card is produced. To download a permission slip, CLICK HERE.
