LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Operation Kidsafe is teaming up with Alderson Auto Group to provide a free service to South Plains families. 

On Saturday, August 13th they invite families to come out and receive free fingerprinting and a full digital head and shoulder photograph. 

The fingerprints and photo are printed on a hard copy and given to parents for safe keeping. 

There is an area on the document for parents to update the photo of their child with a current one, which they recommend doing every six months.

As long as the child is with a trusted adult, Operation Kidsafe will provide the service free of charge. 

This document makes it simple for authorities to distribute and enter into the National Crime Computer if there is ever an emergency.

This document will also have safety tips to help parents create a family safety action plan. 

Operation Kidsafe does not data base and will not ask for any personal information.

The only record of the visit goes home with the parent. 

Operation Kidsafe wants people to know this is not just for children, but for adults too.

They say this program is also good for adults with special needs who may be at risk.

This free event begins at 10 a.m.and ends at 2 p.m. at the BMW Showroom located at 1120 19th Street.
