SAFE CHILD ID PROGRAM


Organized by Mrs. Hoffman, fourth grade students had their photos taken by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. Participating classes included those of Mrs. Hoffman, Mrs. Louey, Mrs. Parker, Mrs. Tice and Mrs. Vargas.

 

 

This is the first year that students from the Intermediate School have participated in the New York State Safe Child ID program.   Each student has received a free card containing the child's name, biographical information (date of birth, gender, height, weight, hair color, eye color, etc.), and a fingerprint image of both index fingers. The card will help provide important details to police agencies investigating child disappearances. 

 

 

The New York State Safe Child Card will serve as an important tool when used in conjunction with the New York State AMBER Alert and Missing Child Alert programs.  The goal is to keep our most precious commodity of the Minisink community safe.  For more information visit:  http://www.criminaljustice.state.ny.us/pio/safechild.htm
