Child Safety Event

John WalshDNA LifePrint is holding a Child Safety Event this Saturday, September 25, 2010 from 9:30 AM until 2:00 PM at Sunnyvale Ford on 650 E. El Camino Real. Sunnyvale Ford is underwriting the event, which is free to the public. Parents can bring their children by to have them digitally fingerprinted (digital digits?) and photographed and receive a child safety kit to take home. DNA LifePrint is endorsed by John Walsh, child protection advocate and host of TV’s “America’s Most Wanted.”

Significantly the take-home kit includes a DNA identification kit. You use it to sample the child’s DNA and store it along with the photo, fingerprints, and other identifying information. In the unthinkable event of a child going missing, the whole kit can be handed over to law enforcement, saving precious time and giving them tools they can use immediately in their investigation. My understanding is that the parents retain all of the gathered information; DNA LifePrint and Sunnyvale Ford don’t keep or database anything, not even a record of your visit, so your privacy is protected. I for one am not comfortable with the idea of a car salesman knowing my family’s genetic predilection for sunroofs, leather seats, and hassle-free financing.

I believe they try to create an event that’s fun and educational for kids, typically with refreshments, entertainment, and appearances by local police, fire, and emergency medical personnel. An interesting fact about the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety is that the single organization fills all three roles. Their Public Safety Officers are cross-trained and are ready at any time to solve a crime, put out a fire, or provide emergency medical care, literally depending on which hat they happen to be wearing.
