Next Tuesday, May 21st, between 10:00 am and noon, Community Officer Sgt. Patrice Gregoire will be at the CAB RH Rediker’s PACE program at 492 Dufferin Street, in Stanstead, to fill out Child Identification booklets with parents. Parents must bring their child or children, of any age under 18, along with them to get a booklet made since the children are fingerprinted. “We don’t keep the fingerprints; they are put into the booklet,” explained Sgt. Gregoire.
Parents of children in the PACE program will be able to have their Child Identification booklets made between 9:00 and 10:00 am on the same day.
“We have a special booklet for children from 0 to 1 ½ years old,” he added about this program which equips parents with an important identification tool to use in the event of a child being abducted or going missing. The booklet also contains information such as names and phone numbers of friends, for older children, photographs and descriptions. Parents will also learn many tips on how to prevent child abductions. The activity is related to Enfant-Retour Quebec which is part of the Missing Children’s Network.
“I will welcome all the parents who want to have a booklet made for their children. I won’t give anyone a hard time,” joked the Community Officer. Sgt. Gregoire will also fill out Child Identification booklets during the Stanstead Heroes in 30 health day event that will be held on May 25th at the Pat Burns Arena. This is a free service.
