Mounties fingerprint over 160 kids at Kidz Printz event
By David F. Rooney
When they woke up Saturday morning, local Mounties and auxiliary constables running that day’s Kidz Printz event had no idea how many parents would bring their childrenout to get fingerprinted, photographed and DNA-sampled.
But they quickly found out that the event was very popular. When they arrived at the Community Centre at 11 a.m. on Saturday there was already a lineup and by day’s end more than 160 kids had been fingerprinted, had their DNA sampled and their mugshots taken, with the welcome assistance of members of the CPR’s Operation Lifesaver.
