(SYOSSET, N.Y.) – More than two dozen families received specialized identification cards for their children on Saturday, Feb. 3 during an “Operation Safe Child” event hosted by Nassau County Legislature Deputy Minority Leader Arnold W. Drucker (D – Plainview) and Nassau County District Attorney Anne T. Donnelly at the Syosset Public Library.

During the event, families were provided with the opportunity to have their children fingerprinted and photographed for the creation of a card that was then issued to them at no cost. Safe Child cards contain a child’s name, biographical information, fingerprint images of both index fingers and a high-resolution digital photo. In addition, the fingerprints of that child will be included in a special search file and compared against all incoming fingerprints submitted to the agency. To date, the Nassau DA’s office has produced more than 10,000 cards for children.

“When a child is missing and every second counts, it is crucial for law enforcement and our first responders to have the most accurate information at their disposal as quickly as possible,” Deputy Minority Leader Drucker said. “I thank our partners at the DA’s office and the Syosset Public Library for bringing this vital, no-cost program to our community, and I look forward to future Operation Safe Child events throughout the district.”
