Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano, in partnership with New York State Senator Michael Venditto, is helping to protect children by providing free “KidPix” photo identification cards to parents and children. Along with a picture, fingerprint and contact information, the identification card includes the date of birth, physical description and gender of the child.
County Executive Mangano said, “The KidPix program provides parents a convenient way to keep their children’s important information on a single, wallet sized ID card. If ever a child is missing, parents can present the KidPix card to law enforcement officials as a helpful tool to help return the child quickly.”
“I am pleased to partner with Nassau County Executive Mangano to provide parents with the opportunity to protect their children by taking advantage of this free service. If you can take a few minutes to stop by one of these upcoming locations to get your child a free KidPix ID, it is an important tool for parents to have to safeguard their children,” said New York State Senator Michael Venditto.
Nassau County children of all ages can participate in the KidPix program. Photos and fingerprints will be processed on-site and families will be able to take their KidPix cards home right from the event.
