This event gave parents the opportunity to obtain safety information including Child ID Kits with current photographs and fingerprints of their children. Together with The Molly Bish Foundation, Officers fingerprinted and photographed more than 150 children. Amherst Officers also ensured that child safety seats were properly installed. In conjunction with this event, The American Red Cross was on hand for a blood drive as well.
The day’s events helped reinforce the importance of child safety to the community and to public safety.
The event is made possible by grant funding from the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security Community Policing Grant Program.
