Sheriff's Office Introduces Program to Help Find Kids Faster

May 21, 2013

The Greene County Sheriff's Office is rolling out a new program, designed to help keep kids safer.

The program is called the Kid Card, and it provides parents with an ID card of their child that they can give to emergency workers if the child is ever lost.

The card has a picture of the child, a complete description, and a thumb print. On the back of the card are instructions on what to do if your loved one is lost.

Sheriff's Deputies say if parents have the card ready to do, then it can help find a missing child a lot faster.

"A lot of times when there's a special need or a special situation arises, people are in a panicked state, and this will give them direction as to what to do immediately," said Greene County Deputy Sheriff Michael Martin. "And all the information on the front about their loved one is contained on the front, so they can easily give it to rescue folks."

The cards are free, and you can get them at the Greene County Sheriff's Office during normal business hours.
