Attorney General’s Office Issues ID Kits To Schools

The state Attorney General’s office is distributing 900-thousand fingerprint identification kits to schools.

The idea is to take them home, so parents can have their children’s fingerprints and some personal information on-hand just in case they ever go missing.

Law enforcement officials say the kits are for parents to keep, and are not meant to be sent back to the state. The kits cost a total of about three-million dollars.
