Operation Kidsafe Announces One Million Children Protected Celebration Event in Springfield, IL Oct 20, 2012
Springfield, IL, October 05, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Mark J. Bott, the Founder of Operation Kidsafe is a Springfield resident. Most people know Mark from his years of commercials in the Auto Industry. Mark started his volunteer efforts 16 years ago volunteering and hosting over 100 child safety Town Meetings. Mark has worked for and with John Walsh the host of America’s Most Wanted and helped launch the Amber Alert. Mark was also mentioned in GQ magazine for being part of a march across America for children and helped write and push through to law the most aggressive sex offender punishment legislation.

Mark has 7 children and when he stared becoming a child advocate, he quickly found that most parents don't have a family safety plan.

To help protect children and educate parents, Mark started Operation Kidsafe 11 years ago. Operation Kidsafe is celebrating over one million children protected free of charge in the United States and Canada.

Mark will be doing a media tour on Thursday, Oct. 18th, 2012 for the Springfield celebration event.

There is no data-basing. The parent is handed the finished product, a letter size document - with the child’s digital fingerprints and photo. The quality is so good that the prints can be scanned into the National Crime Computer if the child is ever missing.

Operation Kidsafe's goal is to give parents safety tips that will help them start a family safety action plan.
