GLOVERSVILLE - Officials with the Fulton County Sheriff's Office will help volunteers at the American Cancer Society's 2011 Relay For Life of Fulton and Montgomery Counties at Park Terrace School from Friday afternoon through Saturday morning.
Sheriff Thomas J. Lorey said officials with his department will offer free registration for the state Operation Safe Child Identification program at the event from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. along with a Sheriff's K-9 Team demonstration, which has been scheduled from 7:45 to 8:15 p.m.
Lorey said registration for Operation Safe Child will be open to the public and that parents may bring their children to the event to register their child's information and receive a free identification card containing digital fingerprint scans, a photo and other information to be used in the event a child goes missing, a news release said.
Lorey said a sheriff's office radar monitor will be stationed on South Kingsboro Avenue beginning Friday to help Gloversville police raise traffic safety awareness in the area of Park Terrace School.
He said officials are expecting heavy traffic as a result of the event, and motorists are encouraged to avoid unnecessary travel throughout the area of the school.
