OJJDP Staff Participate in Kids' Day
Several OJJDP staff members were among the many volunteers from the Office of Justice Programs who participated in the Attorney General's Kids Day event at the FBI Headquarters on August 23, 2006. Nels Ericson, Darren Jones, Donni LeBoeuf, Lucia Turck, and Ruby Qazilbash represented OJJDP at the event, which highlighted several OJJDP- and OJP-supported programs.
McGruff, The Crime Dog, from the National Crime Prevention Council's "Taking A Bite Out of Crime" program posed for photographs and handed out comic books, stickers, and badges.
Representatives from NetzSmartz, the Internet Safety Program for Children at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), responded to questions about the program and distributed program brochures, trading cards, and temporary tattoos.
NCMEC also sent Special Agents to take and provide parents with digital photos and fingerprints of their children to keep in case of an emergency. More than 100 children participated in this activity and received valuable information.
