CHILDREN'S IDENTIFICATION CARD
How to Protect Your Kids
A child disappears in a crowd at the fair. A toddler wanders out an open door. A teen doesn’t return from the mall. Every year, hundreds of thousands of kids in the U.S. are reported “missing.”
What can you as parents do to help ?
Here’s one important suggestion: have information that helps identify your child ready to hand to law enforcement the instant you report your child missing.
All you need to do is take fingerprints of your child.
Recording your child’s fingerprints is particularly important. Why? Not only because everyone’s fingerprints are unique, but also because they don’t change over time like physical appearances.
Are the fingerprints or other information kept by the FBI? No! You keep the fingerprint card yourself in a safe place…and provide the information to local authorities only in case of emergency.
At A. Rivera Live Scan & Ink Fingerprinting we can fingerprint roll your child's fingerprints and take their photo on a Children Identification Card, you can also describe your child’s physical descriptions—including a body map for pointing out scars, birthmarks, and other identifying features;
and a place to keep current photos (we recommend to update the photo every year.)
If a child is missing, law enforcement authorities can use the fingerprint card to scan the child's fingerprints into the National Crime Information Center database. These fingerprints can then be used to help locate the child in a variety of ways
