GOUVERNEUR May 11 through the 17 is National Hospital week and Gouverneur Hospital has partnered with the St. Lawrence County Sheriffs Associations Suzanne Williams, who will be available to register local children with the New York State Safe Child ID Card.
These cards contain the childs name, biographical information (date of birth, gender, height, weight, hair color, eye color, etc) and a fingerprint image of both index fingers. It takes less than two minutes and can be easily carried in a wallet or pocketbook. The cards allow law enforcement quick access to pertinent information that could assist an investigation and or search in the event a child is missing.
This community program is scheduled for Thursday from 8:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. in the new hospital lobby at 77 West Barney St.
