SKIP (Safe Kids Identification Program)

The Safe Kids Identification Program is a service provided free of charge to the Lower Gwynedd Township Community and surrounding areas.

SKIP provides a parent or guardian with a CD/video/audio recording of the child, their fingerprints and packaging for the parent or guardian to collect and store DNA samples. The parent or guardian retain sole possession of all of the child's identification material.

In the event of an emergency, information from the CD can be quickly and easily forwarded to the State Police Amber Alert Center and to media outlets.

The Police Department will offer the SKIP program to community groups, schools or by appointment at Police Headquarters.

For additional information, contact Lieutenantat Paul Kenny 215-646-5303.
