Child Print

Child's handprintThe Child Print Program provides families with practical information in case a child is lost or goes missing. Education is the first step to safety. The Child Print program strives to make communities safer for children, and teaches children and adults street safety tips.

What can you do?

Parents/guardians are encouraged to keep an up-to-date record of each child that includes fingerprints, a recent photograph and descriptive details, as well as the names and phone numbers of the family doctor, dentist and friends. The program - often available at community events across the city - is a great way for children to make positive contact with police and learn valuable prevention and street proofing tips.

Interested parents or guardians are encouraged to visit their local Community Police Centre to get a copy of the Child Print booklet.

Keep the complete Child Print booklet and fingerprints in a safe place for your own records.
