Roy Robinson hosts 'Child Safety Day' Oct. 1

TULALIP — Parents will have a chance to help make their children safer at the Roy Robinson Chevrolet, Subaru and RV Center in Tulalip on Oct. 1, as part of a free "Child Safety Day" for the Marysville and Tulalip communities.

From 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., families will be able to obtain free "DNA LifePrint" biometric fingerprinting and identification kits that have been certified by the FBI and endorsed by John Walsh, creator of the long-running "America's Most Wanted" TV series.

Biometrics is the newest and most advanced technology available today for obtaining fingerprints. When the child's fingerprints are entered into the FBI database, they become immediately available to all law enforcement agencies throughout the United States.

Each kit will consist of a child safety journal, to provide law enforcement officials with all the child's vital information, plus important facts they will need immediately after a child is reported missing. Each journal will contain a 10-digit fingerprint profile and a high-resolution full-color digital photograph of the child, and will come with a home DNA identification kit, designed to be easy to use and to last for generations. Each DNA kit contains detailed instructions on how to use it at home.

The only records of each family's visit will be handed to them to take home. The event's sponsors will keep no records on file. Free kits will be available to the first 500 children to attend.

Roy Robinson is located at 6616 35th Ave. NE in Marysville off Exit 199, west of I-5 and across from the Quil Ceda Creek Casino. For more information, call Frank Graham at 360-659-6236 or log onto www.royrobinson.com/DNA.
