New Jersey School police officer sets up a fingerprint program for student’s safety.
Charles Street School police officer and family man Omar Kendall knows a missing child scare is every parent’s worst nightmare. That is why he wanted to bring the Secret Service Operation Safe Kids Program to his school.
“If a parent calls and reports a child missing the first thing they are is hysterical and then the police come in with a thousand questions. The name, the date of birth, the social security number…”
Kendall said this program will help facilitate this process if ever needed.
With parental consent, students were fingerprinted, photographed and given packets so if God forbid they ever run away or are taken, their parents would have the necessary information to give to police.
“This stuff will be at the ready, they can hand us the packet, everything is there,” said Kendall.
Some parents may have privacy concerns but they were assured the information was given back to the them and not stored.
Although it may be scary, this is another resource to use to help support, protect and keep kids safe, For Goodness Sake.
