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
