Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco was on-hand at the Sam's Club store and received the donated funds on behalf of his agency on December 06, 2013. The child DNA kits are designed to generate a personal file for parents and guardians to maintain as records in their homes. The child DNA kits contain fingerprints of each child, a photograph, and a pedigree such as the child's height, weight, hair and eye color, and the child's full name and date of birth.
Deputies with the Pasco County Sheriff's Office and support staff, such as crime scene technicians, do all the work and produce the file for the parent(s) and guardian(s) to take home with them. PCSO announces dates pertaining to this process in advance.
The child DNA kits contain fingerprint and DNA swab applications that can help to identify crucial evidence in missing and abducted child cases. The kits will be handed out to parents and guardians at community events, and sheriff's office functions.
Although a child's physical characteristics change over the course of time, the DNA and fingerprint aspects are infinitely unalterable. Some DNA kits may come with dental card denotations pertaining to a child's dental record history. Dental forensics are utilized by law enforcement authorities in matching children as it relates to discerning positive identifications.
Typically, at the commencement of each new school year, local schools have respective- jurisdiction law enforcement personnel in attendance, often set up at a table, so as to process the child DNA kits and hand them out to a child's parents or guardians.
Thanks to the New Port Richey, Fla., Sam's Club staff, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office deputies can compile and record more child DNA kits for parents to maintain.
