The Brigantine Police department fingerprinted Brigantine students at the school Jan. 24. The fingerprints were placed in Child ID Kits that were distributed to each child who wished to have one and whose parents had signed a permission slip.

Child ID Kits contain vital information including a photograph and fingerprints, in case the child goes missing. Once the kids were fingerprinted, the Child ID kits were given to them to take home to keep for their records. The Brigantine Police Department does not keep any record of the Child ID Kit.

If you did not receive a kit but you would like one for your child, please contact the school.

The kits can also be used for elderly persons or children with disabilities. If you wish to have a kit, and are not in the Brigantine School, please contact Detective Steven Ward, (609) 266-7600 ext. 270, at the Brigantine Police Department.

The Police Department wants to remind you that your fingerprints never change, but your appearance does. So it is encouraged that you update the kit with current photographs.

Chief John Stone would like to thank the parents and the school for their cooperation in helping keep our children safe.
