Child identification clinic at Envision

Event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sept. 22 at the Hope branch

Envision Financial and Hope Crime Prevention are offering a complimentary child identification clinic on Saturday.

Volunteers will be onsite to finger print children and provide them with their own personalized child identification book. There will also be games, prizes, popcorn and other activities for children to participate in.

“We are pleased to partner with Hope Crime Prevention to offer this invaluable service to families in Hope,” said Ruby Rempel, assistant branch manager at Envision’s Hope location. “Envision strives to make a meaningful difference in the lives of our members and in our local communities which is why we are proud to support initiatives like the child identification day.”

The child identification book provides a valuable resource in the event a child goes missing. All information that police will need is contained in this book, including the child’s photo, description details, medical information, fingerprints and DNA as well as a listing of important phone numbers. Search efforts are able to progress more quickly by having all the information in one, easy-to-locate book.

The clinic focuses on children and infants 12 years of age and younger, and a parent or legal guardian must be present in order for the child to participate. Upon completing the child ID book, none of the personal information will be kept by Envision Financial or Hope Crime Prevention.

The clinic runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sept. 22 at the Envision branch in Hope, located at 231 Commission St.
