Gribbin students had an opportunity to participate in Operation Safe Child, thanks to the Nassau County District Attorney’s Office and the Glen Cove Police Department.

The program, which is held at the school annually, collects vital information on students and incorporates it on an identification card 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.
