The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office continued its community outreach with Coffee with a Cop at The Hub in the Lunda Community Center last Thursday.

Every month the sheriff’s office gets together with members of the community to address concerns in the area and hold a presentation on different topics.

This month’s discussion was about the SafeAssured ID program and the benefits it can provide to the community.

SafeAssured ID creates a digital profile for people who might not normally have an ID, like children in case of an abduction or other emergency situations.

The program takes both a photo and video of the person walking to cover multiple angles of the faces and some walking mannerisms that are hard to change if a person is lost.
