Local business offers child safety preparedness program

By CHRIS AGEE

As part of its commitment to community outreach, Ram Country of Mineral Wells will be providing fingerprinting and other services via Operation Kidsafe.

Parents can take part in the program beginning at 10 a.m. Wednesday and the program will be available during business hours from that point forth.

According to its website, Operation Kidsafe is a program developed through consultation with FBI, police, and fingerprinting authorities.

Children can have their fingerprints and photograph digitally captured and parents take home a printed copy of the results. Documents can be updated at a later date with current photographs.

Parents whose children have been to Operation Kidsafe can contact law enforcement in the event a child is missing or has been kidnapped. Once informed the identifying document is available, police will have access to the potentially vital information.

Children will also receive educational material to help them avoid compromising situation as well as information about enacting a family safety action plan.

Operation Kidsafe does not retain any of the information gathered and the only record of the visit is the document given to parents. In the case of an emergency, though, the document is easily published for distribution and entry into the National Crime Computer.
