Police roll out Child ID Kit:

            Thanks to the generous donations of our local business community (Primo Pizza, Aversa’s Bakery, Knights of Columbus, Bloomingsales, Fine Arts Management Group, B&B Floor Covering, Drs. Donati, Ernest and Son, Kenny’s Auto Center, Yuki Hana, Seagull Motel, Finale Salon, Brigantine Beach Patrol, and Sun National Bank), we will soon begin rolling out our free National Child ID Kit. Letters will be going home with the school children asking permission to finger print children, take a picture and (optionally) provide a hair sample and any medical information/history you wish to provide for your child. A date will be set where we will come to the school and fill out all the kits and return them to the children for them to take home and complete with parents. In the event that a child (or disabled person or senior!) goes missing, family members can bring this kit to police as the process to enter them missing begins. Please take advantage of this free kit to help us help you when a family member goes missing.
