Paramount : Video Child Identification

March 13, 1986

In an attempt to make identification of children easier in an emergency, families can have videotapes of their youngsters made Saturday through the city's Child-Safe video program.

Volunteers from the Paramount Neighborhood Watch will make videotapes of youths from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Progress Plaza Park, 15500 Downey Ave., said Bob Robinson, city public safety administrator.

City video camera equipment will be used to make two-minute tapes, which will include interviews with the children. Fingerprints will also be taken. The youths will be asked a series of questions which could be used to assist in identification, Robinson said.

Children must be accompanied by an adult.

The service is free to families who bring a VHS videotape tape. Tapes may also be purchased at the time of taping from the city for $4. The city purchased 100 tapes at $4 each, Robinson said.
