Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and County Legislator Richard Nicolello are 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 commend the County Executive for continuing to run this potentially lifesaving program,” said Legislator Nicolello. “Whenever a child goes missing every second can count, and the KidPix card helps law enforcement save valuable time.”
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.
