Sheriff's office to host child fingerprinting event

WOODSTOCK – The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, in partnership with the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office, will observe National Missing Children’s Day this year by participating in the national Take 25 child safety campaign.

A child fingerprinting event will be held from 8:30 to 10 a.m. and 1 to 3 p.m. Wednesday at the sheriff’s office, 2200 N. Seminary Ave., Woodstock. The event will be held in the training division on the second floor of the courthouse.

May 25 has been observed as National Missing Children’s Day since 1983. It serves as an annual reminder that there are thousands of children who are still missing and stresses the importance of making child protection a national priority.

The Take 25 campaign is a national child safety public awareness campaign created in 2007 by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The campaign encourages parents to take 25 minutes to talk to their children about safety and ways to prevent abduction. The campaign begins May 1 and continues through May 25 every year.
