Community Briefing (8-5-2014)

Families are invited to a free child safety event Saturday in Patterson, where parents can get updated photos of their children and other crucial material needed in case of a child’s disappearance. The KlaasKids Foundation “Print-A-Thon” is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Plaza Park at West Las Palmas Avenue and Second Street in Patterson. Each child will receive a free comprehensive packet of child safety tools. Using computerized systems originally designed for a federal law enforcement agency, parents will receive digitized fingerprints and an updated photo for each of their children. Parents also will receive a DNA collection kit, child safety tips and a nine-point plan on what to do if a child disappears. Patterson is underwriting the event, so families can receive these materials for free. The KlaasKids Foundation was created after the 1993 kidnapping and murder of 12-year-old Polly Klaas. Her father, Marc Klaas, will attend and participate in Saturday’s event. The foundation’s child safety programs are designed to promote awareness and education for parents and children in an effort to protect children against violence.
