Child ID Event Saturday

The Collier County Sheriff’s Office and the National Center For Missing & Exploited Children will offer child fingerprinting and photography services in North Naples on Saturday.

Representatives from CCSO and NCMEC will be on hand during Family Fun Day, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Naples Daily News Media Group building, 1100 Immokalee Road.

Families can bring their children out for a day of entertainment, food, fun and more.

One of the most important tools for law enforcement to use in the recovery of a missing child is an up-to-date, good-quality photograph, along with descriptive information.

CCSO and NCMEC recommend parents and guardians keep current child identification information on hand and offers its Child Identification Program to help provide families with the necessary tools.

Parents will receive a 10-digit fingerprint profile and a high-resolution full-color digital photo of their child that can be used nationwide to find missing and exploited children.
