Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez has announced that employees from the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office will be volunteering to provide Child Fingerprinting for Parent’s Retention on Saturday, February 25, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Hudson Mall. The Hudson Mall is located at 701 Route 440 in Jersey City.
The fingerprinting process is free and includes a Child ID Kit for parents to keep in their files. The Child ID Kit includes a section for all 10 fingerprints, a photo and other vital information. After the fingerprinting is done, parents keep possession of their child’s confidential kit and can update the photo as their child ages. However, if they ever need help locating and identifying a missing child, this can become a valuable tool that parents can choose to share with authorities.
“No parent wants to imagine the prospect that one of their children could ever go missing,” said Suarez. “However, this is an important safeguard that can become crucial for authorities when searching for a missing child should that unforeseen event ever occur.”
This is a free community event and everyone is welcome.
