Operation Safe Child
Sheriff Carl E. DuBois is proud to announce that the Orange County Sheriff’s Office is offering the Safe Child ID program to all parents in Orange County. This program has been designed by the New York State Department of Criminal Justice Services and is being made available to local residents.
This is how the program works: Our Deputies will take a picture of your child along with their fingerprints. This is done after a written parental consent form has been obtained. An identification card will be made. The ID card will have pertinent information about the child. This information includes the child’s name, date of birth. eye and hair color along with the child’s height and weight. The identification is printed and given to parents for safekeeping.
The program is offered on an individual basis or in groups. Parents can come to the Sheriff’s Office Monday through Friday ,9AM to 3PM ,to register their child or our ID unit can visit schools or child based events to register the children . Appointments for Safe Child registration are recommended. If you are interested in the program please fax your request on letterhead to Barbara Martinez at (845) 294-1590 or contact our office at (845) 291-7900.
Parental consent is available in both Spanish and English and can be obtained by calling the number above.
