Operation Kids Program
I strongly urge all parents / responsible parties of a child to participate in the program when it is made available to them. Matthew was fingerprinted in elementary school.
This is a painless and valuable procedure. When the police asked me for any identifying marks, I recalled having had this done. It made me feel better, knowing I had this positive means of identification at hand. Once done, you can file it away in a safe place and hopefully it will never be needed. One must look at it as a positive step, not unlike an insurance plan.
