Child Safety Awareness Month | Moms
Over 100,000 children go missing in California each year.
An estimated 1,478 cases of family abductions and 53 cases of stranger abduction occur annually in California. In addition more than 90,000 kids, mostly teens, run away.
Fingerprints are critical tools in being able to bring children home safely, yet most parents don't have their child's fingerprints recorded.
Join News10 and Sac & Co along with State leaders, the National Sheriffs Association, Society of Former Special Agents of the FBI and FBI National Citizens Academy Alumni Association for 'Child Safety Awareness Month,' to raise awareness about the National Child Identification Kit as a vital tool for parents to safeguard their children in case of emergency.
Each kit is enclosed in a standard #10 letter-sized envelope and is comprised of a DNA collection envelope with DNA swabs and an inkless fingerprinting card with:
- Step-by-step instructions detailing how to take a fingerprint
- An area to practice fingerprinting
- A standard fingerprint area that can be used by law enforcement
- Foil pouch containing inkless fingerprinting solution
- Sections for recording the child's physical description and identifying marks
- Sections for recording doctor phone numbers
- Space for current photograph
- DNA swab for collecting and storing child's DNA
This kit allows all information to be kept at home by parents and guardians for easy access and to be shared with law enforcement in case a child is missing.
For every kit purchased, one kit will be automatically donated to a family in need.
