December 10, 2013

     Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (R-Merrick) and the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office will be sponsoring a free child ID card program in Lindenhurst. The program will take place on Friday, January 10th from 12-3 pm at the Lindenhurst Library (1 Lee Avenue, Lindenhurst).

     The New York State Safe Child Card gives parents a convenient way to keep their children’s important information on a single, wallet sized ID card. The card includes the child’s:

     • Name

     • Date of birth

     • Gender

     • Height

     • Weight

     • Hair Color

     • Eye Color

     • Fingerprint image of both index fingers

     Safe Child Cards will be printed and processed on site and parents will be able to take the cards home with them right from the event. Parents will also have the voluntary option to share the information on the card with the New York State Division of Criminal Justice’s Amber Alert and Missing Child Alert program.

     Parents who have questions or need additional information about the Child ID card program on January 10th can call Senator Fuschillo’s office at 516-882-0630.
