Child Safety Program
The Child Safety Program is a comprehensive Identification Program the Town Clerk's Office has administered to protect and safeguard the Town of Hempstead's most valuable asset, our children.
This program is extremely unique in that the Town Clerk's employees actually take the fingerprints and photographs of the children and both are memorialized in a "Kit" FREE of charge. It must be noted that there are no privacy concerns, as the completed kit is provided to the child's family and no record of the fingerprints/photographs are retained by the Town of Hempstead.
The Town Clerk also uses the Town of Hempstead Mobile Town Hall (Recreation Vehicle), making this service more convenient and easily accessible to every resident and community throughout the Town of Hempstead.
This program has been very successful in servicing hundreds of schools, churches, clubs, teams and organizations. Well over 80,000 children have utilized the Child Safety Identification Program to date.
To have the Town Clerk's Office come to your school, church or organization or to receive additional information, please call (516) 812-3046.
This service is also available at the Town Clerk's Office at Town Hall located at 1 Washington Street, Hempstead, NY from 9 AM to 4 PM.
If you would like to apply for a Child ID kit, you may attend one of the upcoming community events listed on the schedule at the top of this page, or visit our office at Hempstead Town Hall.
Senior Identification Program
Similar to the Child Safety Program, the Senior Identification Program is a great service made available to all senior citizens (ages 60 and up) in the Town of Hempstead.
The Town Clerk's Office provides FREE Town of Hempstead Senior I.D. Cards, complete with a resident's personal data, physicians' contact information and emergency phone numbers. Allergies and other vital information can also be printed on these wallet-sized cards. Seniors will also get an 8 1/2" X 8" form that can be placed on their refrigerator doors.
These Senior I.D. Cards and forms may be useful in the event of an emergency, as medical technicians can quickly gather pertinent information about a senior and contact his/her doctors and family members.
The Town Clerk's Office regularly travels to area senior centers to provide this service. Members of churches, senior clubs and other organizations can also call the Town Clerk's Office at (516) 812-3046 to set up their own dates.
The service is also available at Hempstead's Mobile Town Hall and at the Town Clerk's Office at Town Hall, 1 Washington Street, Hempstead, NY from 9 AM to 4 PM. For further information, please call (516) 812-3046.
If you would like to receive a Senior ID card, you may attend one of the upcoming community events listed on the schedule at the top of this page, or visit our office at Hempstead Town Hall, Monday through Friday, 9 AM to 4 PM.
