Sheriff coming to Back Bay Gardens to corral seniors for photo ID card program

Hudson County Sheriff Frank Schillari will be visiting Bayonne on Wednesday, Feb. 12 to provide seniors with their free “Ident-Adult” cards, a program provided by the Sheriff’s Office.

The event will take place at the Back Bay Gardens, 535 Ave. A, beginning at 10:45 a.m.

Schillari will be joined by Bayonne Mayor Mark Smith and Assemblyman Jason O'Donnell to stress the importance of the program.

The Sheriff’s Office provides the photo identification cards free to all Hudson County residents age 50 or older. Seniors participating in the program receive photo ID wallet cards, which also contain emergency information, including medical conditions and allergic reactions, as well as doctors’ names and phone numbers.

“During an emergency, the photo identification cards provide critical information that can help save a life,” Schillari said.

An information session about the program will be held first, and ID cards will be produced for those choosing to participate.
