Operation Safe Child

Gribbin students took part in Operation Safe Child, thanks to a collaborative effort between the Nassau County District Attorney’s office and the Glen Cove Police Department.
The program, which collects vital information on students and incorporates it on an identification card, can be used to aid parents and law enforcement officials in the event of an emergency. Students had their photographs, fingerprints, height and weight taken by members of the Glen Cove Police Department.  That information, along with the child’s hair color, date of birth and gender, are stored in a database in Albany that can be accessed within minutes all over the country.
Gribbin Principal Francine Santoro said the school has participated in Operation Safe Child for years because the safety of the school’s children is paramount.
