What is the National Child Identification Program?

The National Child Identification Program is a community service initiative dedicated to reducing the number of missing children by providing parents and guardians with a tool they can use to help protect their children. The ID Kit allows parents to collect specific information by easily recording the physical characteristics and fingerprints of their children on identification cards that are then kept at home by the parent or guardian. If ever needed, this ID Kit will give authorities vital information to assist their efforts to locate a missing child.

The National Child Identification Program is more effective than traditional identification programs because it offers:

Comprehensive, descriptive information in one place:

Children’s appearances change rapidly, and simple alterations in clothes or hair make identification difficult. The ID Kit includes a section for a current photograph, as well as space for recording descriptions and measurements.

Decentralized fingerprinting:

There are not enough police officers or labor available to centrally fingerprint America’s children using traditional methods. It would take more than 10 million hours or 4,800 working years, to centrally fingerprint the nation’s 60 million children.
