The Sierra Vista Police Department is having a child identification and bicycle registration event Saturday.
From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the police department, 911 N Coronado Drive, parents can bring their kids in to receive an Amber Alert-ready package that will contain the child’s DNA swab, color photo, fingerprints and a recorded interview.
The information is printed out and downloaded onto a CD that is given to the parent or guardian. The software is designed so none of the child’s information is saved on the computer.
More than 100 children were registered at the SVPDs first child identification day, Cpl. Scott Borgstadt, spokesman for the SVPD, said in a press release.
At the same time, officers will be registering bicycles for Sierra Vista residents. Serial numbers on the bicycles, and information about the bike owners will be recorded in the SVPD computer system. No additional numbers will be placed or stamped on the bike. This will aid officers in returning stolen bikes to the owners.
Both services are free.
For more information call Cpl. Borgstadt at 520-452-7500.
