Fingerprinting

Children are our greatest resource!


There are so many things that we can do as parents to protect our children….

  • Organise Block Parent programs in neighbourhoods
  • Volunteer at schools for absentee reporting systems
  • Teach children what to do in perilous situations

Although these are important things to do, they can not guarantee that our children will remain safe.

FingerprintFingerprinting records important information about your child which law enforcement will need should your child ever go missing.  You are encouraged to keep an up to date photo as well as height and weight information.  The card stays with the parent so that he or she can immediately give the information to law enforcement should it ever be needed.

The program is also a great way to introduce and remind your child about safety tips they should keep in mind when dealing with strangers, the internet, and abduction situations.  The more familiar your child is with these techniques, through reminders and role playing with parents, the less likely they will find themselves in a dangerous situation.

Although our fingerprints remain the same through out our lives, they also become clearer after the age of 7, so repeating the fingerprinting process yearly is a good practice.

Call your local community policing office for more information, or call the office to when the next fingerprint session is going on in your area.

Remember to fingerprint now….  You can’t do it later.
