The Community Child Safe I.D. Program is a computerized system that utilizes a digital photo and "livescan" laser fingerprint scanner to capture all 10 fingerprints. The system takes a digital photograph of the child, their 10 fingerprints and prints that out on a large brochure stock-type paper, along with the child's personal information (name/address/phone#/mother/father's info/ known clubs and associates/medical history/emergency contact info/physician dentist info/physical description)
Once the information is printed out, the child's information is located in 3 areas on the printout.
Top left and right - wallet cards for both parents (To include the child's photo/personal info/thumbprint/) - On the back of the wallet card is information for the parent to utilize in the event their child becomes missing)
On the bottom portion of the printout is the larger section that has the child's large digital photo, personal info, and 10 fingerprints. (On the back of the large portion are child safety tips for parents for their children for at home/school/play, etc
During this, we process the child's information onto a computer disc that the parents can take home with them, along with the printout. Parents can make copies of the disc and give them out to relatives or keep one in their vehicles, in case of an emergency.
Parents can't access the information on the disc at home, but Law Enforcementcan access the disc information upon presentation and enter it in an AFIS System, (Automated Fingerprint Identification System).
The information can also be attached to e-mail systems and can be passed on to Amber Alert Systems, for quick dissemination of information.
The program is free of charge and is excellent information for parents to keep available on their children.
**Parents are reminded to bring along their child’s personal information, physical description, and physicians/dentists address phone numbers.
At this time, the Hamilton County Sheriff\'s Office is the only Law Enforcement agency in Hamilton County that utilizes this system and is 1 of 2 agencies in the State of Ohio.
