MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, MO (KFVS) - The Mississippi County Sheriff's Department recently visited the Charleston Head Start to provide fingerprinting for identity kits.
According to Sheriff Keith Moore, about 65 children were fingerprinted on identity kit cards to be given to their parents, and given safety tips essential to helping them avoid dangerous situations.
Students were shown the different types of prints, and taught to identify each. The information was presented by the Jail Administrator, Deputy Cory Hutcheson, and Corrections Officers Gerald Douglas and Faith Altamirano.
Sheriff Moore would like to thank Charleston Head Start and DAEOC for inviting the department to participate.
"We enjoy getting out there and interacting with the students," Sheriff Moore said. "They learn a little about what we do, and take home a valuable keepsake."
