free Child ID at Palisades Mall on Saturday

The Masons of Athelstane Lodge No. 839 F. & A.M., Pearl River and the Masons of the Lower Hudson Valley Region are sponsoring a free child ID event this Saturday in Palisades Mall upstate New York. From 10AM to 5PM children can be digitally photographed and finger printed. All data would be then saved to a CD-ROM media which can be quickly handed to the police in case of a kid going missing. No data will remain on the the capture computer. The process should take no longer than 10 minutes. Organizers say they have capacity to make 200-300 safety IDs during the event. Saturday event supports the Amber Alert Program (the same you can often see information on highway displays about search for a specific car). Amber Alert has been developed by the National Center For Missing and Exploited Children. Over 20,000 go missing in New York every year. Ability to quickly supply the authorities with missing person data is crucial to find victim.
We recently wrote about FBI iPhone based child ID card which works similar way, except the data is stored on the iPhone insted of a CD-ROM.
Hopefully hurricane Irene doesn’t discourage shopper from coming to the Palisades Mall this weekend and many Child ID will get done.
