GASP, Guardians Advocating Child Safety and Protection, is in its 10th year serving the community to help provide a safer environment for our children by delivering safety programs to protect them from dangerous situations, sex offenses, abuse and abduction. We believe that Education + Prevention = Child Protection.


Our Fingerprint/ID events are provided free of charge for everyone throughout our community and beyond. We are now partnering with many local police and school systems at their Safety Town programs. GASP will provide the parents with an information sheet that they need to fill out with their child's pertinent information. All the information is then inputted into the computer. GASP volunteers then take 2 photos, a front view and a side view of their ear (everyone's ears are different), digital fingerprints, and a short video where we ask their name, age, and a few other questions, so we can get their voice.


All this information is then put on a disc. Once the disc is done, the parent and only the parent will have the disc and all the information. WE DO NOT KEEP ANY INFORMATION; NOTHING IS SAVED! Along with the disc, the parent will receive a bag with a DNA kit and other safety information and tips.   We recommend the parent have a new disc updated every year since children grow, change, and may have new information.


The disc can be opened on their home computer and they can watch the video. They can also print out part of the disc and make their own ID card.


Thank you very much for caring about our children's safety!
