Local Law Enforcement Set To Host 'Safe Assured' Golf Outing

Staff Report

The Spencer Police Department and Owen County Sheriff's Department are teaming up in preparation of a "Safe Assured" Golf Outing at Pinewoods Golf Course near Spencer on Sunday, September 27.

The 1 p.m. shotgun start will cost $20 per player, plus green fees, while teams are chosen on the day of the event.

The outing is primarily to raise funding for local law enforcement to purchase a Safe Assured system, which provides a privacy-protected mini-CD, offering a single repository of important information related to a person or family's child.

The CD will include all ten electronically imaged fingerprints, a digital photograph, streaming video showing mannerisms and gait with a linked audio file providing the child's voice inflection and accent. Private information, such as general physical description, street address, date of birth, life-threatening medical conditions, identifying scars or marks, and tattoos to help identify a child is also included. The ability to create missing person poster from the CD is also included.

Families utilizing the service will also receive a full-color photo data card and a parents' guidebook with prevention tips, written in conjunction with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.

The primary source of income to purchase such a system will come from hole sponsorship from the event. A 'Gold Sponsorship' is available for a donation of $100, while a 'Silver Sponsorship' is available for $50. An 'In Memory Of Sponsorship' is also available for $25. All sponsorships should be mailed to the Owen County Sheriff's Department at 291 Vandalia Avenue, Spencer, IN 47460.

For more information, contact Owen County Sheriff Chester Richardson III at 828-1294 or Spencer Town Marshal Richard Foutch at 821-7439

While "Sunshine Week" doesn't necessarily refer to the weather for us journalists, the sun has coincidentally come out in force this past week. How does the return of the sunshine strike you?
