From Northampton County: "The Northampton County Department of Human Services (DHS) has received reports of someone claiming to be a Children, Youth & Family (CYF) employee, knocking on doors and requesting to fingerprint the children in the home.
"DHS has no connection with this person or persons. All DHS caseworkers conducting home visits identify themselves to the homeowner, show their ID, explain that they’re from CYF and present the resident with an official business card. If a resident is at all apprehensive, they are given an option to speak to the caseworker’s supervisor.
"CYF caseworkers never take anyone’s fingerprints."
