DATE:            TUESDAY, AUGUST 01, 2017

TO:                  ALL MEDIA OUTLETS

FROM:            SHERIFF LELAND FALCON

SUBJECT:      CHILD IDENTIFICATION AND FINGERPRINTS AT LOCAL DAYCARE

                        CENTERS

 

 

PAINCOURTVILLE -  Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon and his staff were at Les Petits Amis, LLC Childcare & Early Learning Center in Paincourtville on Friday, for the purpose of fingerprinting and preparing identification packets on every child.

 

Les Petits Amis is a full-time daycare which caters to children ranging from 8 weeks to 5 years of age.   The center is locally owned by Cheraine B. Melancon.

 

The purpose is to have all information necessary in the event misfortune befalls a child.  The kits provide necessary information allowing law-enforcement to respond quickly in an emergency situation.

 

The event is not a one-time effort.  Sheriff Falcon hopes to update identification and fingerprint kits periodically.
