Child ID Program
The Salem Police Department and the Community Services Unit is proud to be only the second agency in New England, and the first in New Hampshire, to possess an electronic child ID kit. The kit, created by NEC Corporation, was obtained through a generous donation from the Arlington Pond Protective Association.
The electronic child ID kit is designed to digitally scan a child's fingerprint, photograph and other pertinent details of the child to where the information is then downloaded onto a memory stick for the parent. NOTE: This information is not kept on file with the Salem Police Department. This information can then easily and quickly be retrieved by a police agency should the need for the information be necessary. The benefit to this system is that memory sticks are carried around by more people today than ever before. The older paper book ID kits with ink prints and a taped on photograph are often kept at home. Memory sticks are kept on key chains and in pocketbooks and are often with the parent while away from home where the concern for a missing child may happen.
Fingerprints are done by appointment only for Salem residents. To schedule an appointment, please contact Community Affairs Officer Matthew Norcross at (603) 890-2387 Monday - Friday or by
Multiple family members (up to 10) can be placed on a single memory stick using as little as 32MB. Memory sticks are not provided by the Salem Police.
