FREE Child Identification and Fingerprinting


Sheriff's deputies fingerprint and photograph a girl to create a child ID card.

At events all around the county, Sheriff’s deputies fingerprint, photograph and measure a child; add any demographic information a parent provides; and then produce a plastic ID card for the parent’s safekeeping. To protect the privacy of the family, none of the information is retained by the Sheriff’s Office. For families in our community, the card could be the key to assisting law enforcement agencies should their child ever become missing. For the children, the process of producing the card offers a fun and positive experience interacting with law enforcement officers. In 2016, by invitation from community groups and businesses, we attended 93 events and fingerprinted almost 8,000 children. For more information or to request the services at your community event, please send us an email.
