Operation Kidsafe equipment captures photo and fingerprints using a specialized video capture device and software. The data creates a quality printout that is given to the parent, who can use the printout to provide instant information to law enforcement officials during an investigation.

Safety tips also are provided to help families creation a safety action plan. No database or records of children are maintained. The only record belongs to a parent for safekeeping.

Operation Kidsafe, Mark’s Casa Auto Group and a variety of partners, including the APS Education Foundation, are part of the grand opening. Go here for more information.
