Parents, Grandparents, Guardians..........Please call or go by your local Sheriff’s departments and pick up your free child identification kits. The Child Identification kits are designed to give parents or guardians another tool at their disposal should their child disappear or is a victim of a natural disaster or accident, and law enforcement is called in to investigate such an unfortunate case. If a child is abducted and moved to various locations, this sample may be useful for placing the child at each site and helpful in convicting the perpetrator. The Child Identification kits assists parents in easily creating a private and extremely comprehensive record of their child’s personal and medical information, for use in an emergency. When a child is missing, the first few hours are crucial to recovery. During this very emotional time, parents often search for current photos and cannot always remember their child’s most basic characteristics. According to the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, a child goes missing every 40 seconds in the U.S. alone, over 2,100 per day. In excess of 800,000 children are reported missing each year, and another 500,000 go missing without ever being reported. So please get one, and feel it out immediately.
