Cops For Kids


"The first 3 hours are the most crucial..."

When a child is reported missing, time is our greatest enemy. A study by the Washington State Attorney General's Office indicates that in 74 percent of the most tragic cases, missing-child homicides, the child is killed within the first 3 hours.

With this in mind, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® (NCMEC) launched LOCATER™,

a web-based program that enhances law enforcement's ability to recover missing children by providing them with the tools necessary to rapidly disseminate images and information locally, statewide, or nationwide. LOCATER is available to any law-enforcement agency free of charge.

LOCATER is a web-based poster-creation program that provides law enforcement agencies with access to create and distribute their own posters to include Missing Children, Missing Adults, AMBER Alert, Wanted, Crime Alert, and other additional titles. The program allows agencies to distribute posters electronically and transmit the information to other agencies, media outlets, and the general public via Email distribution. Law enforcement agencies are also provided access to LOCATER WebMail to use to communicate with all LOCATER users nationwide.

Vacation House Check

Building Check Cards

Each night Officers patrol businesses in Irvington to make sure they are secure. These building checks include looking for unlocked doors, security lights out, suspicious activity, etc... The business will not get a yellow card every time the building is checked. This would be very costly. The cards are to let you know that even thought you don’t see us; we are always out checking you business. Officers will slide a yellow building check card under the building door with the time, date and other information written on the card. Officers will contact the owner or responsible party for the business if anything out of the ordinary is found.

Business Emergency Contact Information

The Police Department having your Business Emergency Contact Information is very important. We then know who to contact in case of emergency, we find doors/windows open or unlocked, in case of break in, etc..

Please contact us A.S.A.P. by phone, fax, e-mail or by printing and feeling out the Business Emergency Contact Information form with any updates to your Emergency Contact Information,

-Contact person(s) change
-Contact phone numbers change
-Alarm company changes or you install an alarm

The holidays are for some children and their families a great strain on them financially and emotionally. Imagine all the talk of gifts by their peers and the drastic reality that there may not be presents under the tree for them.

Cops For Kids is a non-profit organization, formed in November of 2001 by the law enforcement officials of Breckinridge County, to make sure that the youth of

our county will all have a holiday that is merry and bright.

Our organization collects money throughout the year to take children in need shopping for Christmas gifts for themselves. It has been proven year after year that these children often use the bulk of their money allowed on clothing, coats, shoes and basic care needs. Toys have always been in second light for these youth.

We appreciate any donation you generously choose to grant to the Cops For Kids Program. Please rest assured that all donations are being used to aid our children in Breckinridge County.

If donation is in check form please make your donation payable to: COPS FOR KIDS. Receipts for tax purposes are available upon request.

Thank you in advance and we wish you a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year.
