The Wood County Sheriff's Office is proud to announce that we are the first Sheriff's Office in West Virginia to implement a new technology to help locate lost or abducted children. As of March 2, 2006 we will be able to take a digital photo of a child's iris and working with the Nation's Missing Children Organization, they can be entered into a secure national database. A missing child can be positively identified nationwide in as little as 5 seconds using this technology! Click on the "NEWS" section for more information or go to the "LINKS" section to go to the Child Project web site.
