The Kootenai County Sheriff's Office crime prevention section will be at the Target store in Coeur d'Alene this Friday to create ID-A-KID kits. From 11 am until 2 pm, Sheriff's Office personnel will fingerprint and photograph your children will all information given back to the parent for safe keeping. No information will be retained by the Sheriff's Office. The photographs, fingerprints and other identifying information like height and weight can be a valuable tool for law enforcement if the child is every missing. The Sheriff's Office is offering this service for free, and, if you still have back to school shopping to do, Target is offering a 5% discount to parents on purchases over $50/KXLY 4.
Question: When my kids were little, Mrs. O had them videotaped explaining who they were, height, weight, parents, etc. I'm glad that we never had to use the video for identification purposes. We get a kick out of watching it now. How about you? Did you ever do anything official like ID-A-KID to help in case they ever went missing?
