Free digital fingerprinting, photographs available Dec. 14 and 15
Keeping Kids Safe Project by S.I.P. Kids, a national child safety program that tours the country, will stop in Shippensburg next month to offer free digital fingerprinting and photographs.
S.I.P. Kids will take a child’s picture and fingerprints, using a digital inkless fingerprint capture devise, and include them as part of the child’s file which will be provided to the parent. The parents can use the copy to turn directly over to authorities anywhere in the world to instantly aid an investigation.
Many children are reported missing in the U.S. each year. Some are found in a few minutes or hours, time police say is critical in the recovery of a missing child. Having the child’s file prevents time wasted gathering resources, fingerprints, statistical information and photographs.
Local organizations and businesses will provide entertainment and health and safety information. These include Shippensburg Fire Department, Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, Child and Family Learning Center and the Parks and Recreation Department.
Everything at the event is free.
