Operation KidSafe Making Two-Day Stop in Santa Barbara

Martial Arts Family Fitness is hosting the regional stop of the Operation KidSafe National Safety Tour, a free digital fingerprint and photo safety program.

Visit the fitness center, at 122 E. Gutierrez St. in Santa Barbara, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Operation KidSafe captures children’s pictures and fingerprints using a digital video capture device, digital inkless fingerprint capture device and specialized software. The captured data is assembled and a quality printout is given to each child’s parents. Parents can use the printout to provide to law enforcement anywhere in the world to instantly help in an investigation.

No database or records of children are maintained. The only record of the visit will go home with the parent for safekeeping.

Mark Agnew is the national events coordinator for Operation Kidsafe.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
