Week in Fairfax

Helping Keep Children Safe

City of Fairfax police, in conjunction with the Optimist Club, will be offering Safe Assured identification kits on Tuesday, Feb. 21, from noon-5 p.m., at police headquarters, 3730 Old Lee Highway.

Parents will receive a full-color photo ID and a mini-CD containing digital fingerprints, a digital photo, video showing movement and mannerisms, a general physical description, vital personal information and a family code word. Private information is encrypted and accessible only by law enforcement.

Missing-persons posters can be created and printed directly from the mini-CD in English, Spanish and French. The Safe Assured ID kits can also be used as a valuable aid for adults with special needs. The kits are free and an appointment is necessary. Call Sgt. Joe Johnson at 703-385-7966 for further information.
