prints & mug shots

It is not something we like to think about, but child abduction is a very real threat to our children.  My mom always says, "Instead of worry, use that energy to take a step toward prevention or preparation." This week I'm going to take her advice and start my child's "All About Me I.D." record.

According to Child Find Saskatchewan, a local charitable organization dedicated to decreasing and eliminating the incidence of missing and exploited children, maintaining up-to-date records is important. For this reason, Child Find Saskatchewan provides fingerprinting and photo services free of charge. It then compiles the prints and a photo into a comprehensive personal identification booklet that is then given to parents to keep in a safe place.

Child Find Saskatchewan will be holding a free I.D. clinic Jan. 30 from 10 a.m to 2 p.m. at Princess Auto in Saskatoon. Parents must show two pieces of I.D. for themselves and one piece of identification for the child. This could include a provincial health care card, birth certificate or passport. 

"All About Me I.D." booklets can also be created any business day at Child Find Saskatchewan, 202- 3502 Taylor Street, Saskatoon. Call 955-0070 to set up an appointment.

Child Find Saskatchewan also provides useful pamphlets for "street-proofing" our children and what to do if your child is missing.  The Canadian RCMP also has some good online tips for parents.
