Parents are invited to join the Operation Kidsafe event, which provides an opportunity for kids to join the digital fingerprint and photo safety program.

This limited-time event will be held for free on Saturday, August 13th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the BMW Showroom located at 1120 19th street.

This event is being presented by Operation Kidsafe and the Alderson Auto Group. It's an effort to help parents and their children be informed on safe practices while providing information that can be used in case of emergencies or lost children. The free child safety kit will contain the child's picture and fingerprints.

The data is then given to the parent with an 8 1/2 inch by 11-inch printout of the child's picture. No records will be kept beyond the event to protect the child's safety.
