The Greene County Sheriff’s Office has a KidKard station set up at numerous functions during the year. You can find us at the Greene County Fair, Strawberry Festival, National Night Out, and most other events attended by our office throughout the year.
One of the most important tools for law enforcement when searching for a missing child is an up-to-date, good quality photo along with descriptive information. A Child ID kit is a simple yet effective tool to help families maintain current photos of and descriptive information about their children.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children® is committed to provide training, technical assistance and resources at no cost to law enforcement personnel and others who investigate cases of crimes committed against children, specifically cases of missing children and child sexual exploitation.
Here’s one important suggestion: have information that helps identify your child ready to hand to law enforcement the instant you report your child missing.
Recording your child’s fingerprints is particularly important. Why? Not only because everyone’s fingerprints are unique, but also because they don’t change over time like physical appearances. We also recommend that you update the photos of your kids in the kits at least once a year.You keep the kits and fingerprints yourselves in a safe place…and provide the information to us only in case of emergency. Even then, we don’t keep the information in our records permanently without your permission.
