Event Offers Free Digital Fingerprinting For Kids

Dec 12, 2013

A national child safety organization will be offering free FBI-quality fingerprinting for children this Saturday in Nicholasville.

As the one-year anniversary of the Newtown school shooting approaches, local parents with safety on their minds have a chance to obtain free digital fingerprints for their children this weekend.

Lytishya Borglum, national director of S.I.P. Kids, the group organizing the event, says the records are for private use only.

"The digital fingerprinting that we do is completely private. When you come in, we are not going to take any personal information from your children or from you. What we're going to do is the kids will sit down, we'll take all ten digital fingerprints, and then we put a photo on that record, and that is the only record of the visit. It is going to get printed out and sent directly home with parents," she says.

The fingerprinting is part of a larger child safety fair, which will feature demonstrations, tests, and information from the Nicholasville Fire Department, Girl Scouts of Kentucky, a self-defense organization, and Horses Healing Humans.

The event will be held at Hudson Nissan in Nicholasville Saturday from 10 AM to 4 PM.
