Child fingerprint kits are available free of charge at the LaSalle Police Department for any person that wants to keep a file for their children.

CHAD STICKERS

Children Have an Identity or CHAD stickers are available free of charge to LaSalle residents at the LaSalle Police Department for child safety seats and bicycles. This program was developed as the result of a traffic crash involving a 13 month old boy named Chad. The babysitter who had been driving was killed. Chad was injured, but no one at the scene knew his identity. Only because an emergency room nurse recognized him could his parents be quickly located and his injuries treated. To ensure rapid identification of your child in such an emergency, fill out the sticker and place it on the right corner (child’s right) under the cushion or center back of your child’s safety seat. CHAD stickers for bikes were created for similar reasons. Place this sticker under the bike seat or inside of a helmet so your child can be quickly identified in an emergency. 


TEST MY TEEN

The LaSalle Police Department has joined with Test My Teen to provide parents with an effective means to test their teens for drug use/abuse through a FREE home drug test initiative. Through various programs over the years we have tried to educate kids to “just say no” to drugs. Even good kids can make poor decisions and sometimes parents have tough questions to ask their children.

For year, police have been the first to know when local kids used drugs while their parents were often the last to know. In an effort to help answer parents questions and concerns, Test My Teen has provided the LaSalle Police Department with $5000.00 worth of FREE at home drug test vouchers.
