Free child safety event at Toyota of Albany

— The DNA LifePrint Child Safety Event will take place 9:30 a.m.-2 p.m. April 14 at Toyota of Albany, 2865 Ledo Road.

This program is to provide parents with the tools to help assist law enforcement in the event that their child were to go missing. The event will provide a new biometrics fingerprinting and DNA identification kit.

Biometrics is the most advanced technology available today for obtaining finger prints, organizers say. In the event of a missing child, this collected information is immediately submitted into the FBI aatabase. After the entry, the child's prints become available to law enforcement throughout the U.S.

The kit provides, a FBI-certified Biometrics 10 digit fingerprint profile; a high-resolution, full-color digital photo of the child; a child safety journal with information parents will need following the report of a missing child, and a home DNA identification kit that is easy to use.

There is no database storage. The only record of the visit is handed to the parents in the form of a kit, which the family takes home. The information in the program is recommended to be updated every six months, organizers say.

There is no fee for participation.
