Community Programs
Programs & Resources
Some of the programs offered by the sheriff's department include Identi-Kid, Identi-Senior, Identity Theft Prevention, and Phones for Seniors.
 
Identi-Kid
This program was designed to protect our most precious asset in Westmoreland County, our children. The Westmoreland County Sheriff's Office personnel visits school districts and attends community functions for the sole purpose of fingerprinting and taking a photo of the child for the parent or guardian's records. When available, we also distribute DNA kits. In the unfortunate event that a child becomes missing, parents / guardians can release this information to proper authorities.

Please note that the Westmoreland County Sheriff's Office does not maintain any type of database nor do we keep any fingerprints or photos of your child. This is all given back to the parent / guardian. Also, this information should be updated every three years as your child grows and changes.

Identi-Senior
This program is essentially the same as the Identi-Kid program except that it is geared toward our senior citizens of Westmoreland County. Unfortunately, seniors can develop dementia or Alzheimer's disease and wander away. If this would occur, caregivers / family members can provide this information to the proper authorities. Again, the Westmoreland County Sheriff's Office does not maintain any personal information on file, it is all given back to the family / caregiver.
 
Identity Theft Prevention for Seniors
Westmoreland County Chief Deputy Sheriff Chuck Moore visits senior centers and attends senior citizen fairs to educate our seniors on identity theft through a PowerPoint presentation. Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes and our seniors need to learn how to protect themselves and their savings.
