The Union County Sheriff’s Office started the fingerprint on file program back in 1982. The concept behind the program is to establish a fingerprint record of the child that can be used by law enforcement agencies in the event a child becomes lost or abducted. Since 1995 the FOF program has been updated. Videotaped interviews of each child are prepared that memorializes physical characteristics and speech patterns. The video tapes and fingerprint cards are returned to the parents for safekeeping. Information and scheduling information can be obtained by contacting the Sheriff’s Identification Bureau at 908-527-4950.
