A new option to keep Kidsafe
Salmon Arm parents will get a new way to keep their kids safe with the introduction of a child safety fingerprint station.
Operation Kidsafe will be installed at Salmon Arm GM beginning Thursday, Jan. 30.
It is a free service which records information for parents.
It provides parents with a fingerprint record and photograph that can be given to law enforcement if the need arises.
Safety tips and education are also provided so parents can arm their children with knowledge and create a family safety plan.
Operation Kidsafe has served more than one million children in North America during the past 11 years.
Program founder Mark Bott will be in Salmon Arm for the kick off, which will take place at 2 p.m., Jan. 30 at Salmon Arm GM, located in east Salmon Arm at 3901-11th Ave. NE.
