Children's Fingerprinting Program
The Ellinwood Police Department conducts annual visits to the Ellinwood elementary schools and offers fingerprinting and photographs of each fourth-grade student. This information is placed in a booklet for the parents to keep updated and in a safe place. We encourage all parents to allow their children to be included in this program.
It is our hope that these booklets will not be needed, but in the event a child is missing, they will provide all necessary information for law enforcement to quickly attempt to locate your child. This is a voluntary program and is done only with parent or guardian approval.
No information from these booklets is kept by the Police Department. They are sent home with the children.
Other Fingerprinting Services
The Ellinwood Police Department also offers fingerprinting services to local businesses and the school district. Please contact the Police Department at (620) 564-3001 for further information on this program.
