Safe Child Operation Day
Saturday, Dec 8, 2012, 10:00am
1 Ridge Hill Road , Yonkers, NY 10701
Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano and the Yonkers Police Department today announced the City will host Operation SAFE CHILD Day at Yonkers’ Ridge Hill on Saturday, December 8th, from 10AM-2PM to raise awareness of child safety and provide parents with SAFE CHILD photo identification cards to better protect their children.
In support of this program, Mayor Spano and Yonkers Police will be at the Ridge Hill playground (next to the Cheesecake Factory) on Saturday, December 8th, from 10AM to 2PM, to provide parents with photo ID cards for their children. The cards contain information including the child’s name, date of birth, gender, height, weight, hair color, eye color and a fingerprint image. This information is stored in the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services database and in the unfortunate event that a child goes missing, provides for the immediate dissemination of information among law enforcement throughout the region and state which dramatically increases the possibility of bringing the missing child home safely.
In addition to providing this critical safety service, Mayor Spano's Mobile Constituent Office and Mobile Clerk's Office will be located on-site to provide residents with services and information normally available during weekday operating hours only.
