The FBI’s Child ID App -- Putting Safety in Your Hands

The FBI’s Child ID App is a great tool for parents, giving them an easy way to electronically store pictures and vital information about their children in case they go missing—whether it’s a toddler wandering away at the mall or a teen who has been snatched by a stranger.
This free app provides a convenient place to electronically store photos and vital information about your children so that it’s literally right at hand if you need it. You can show the pictures and provide physical identifiers such as height and weight to security or police officers on the spot. Using a special tab on the app, you can also quickly and easily e-mail the information to authorities with a few clicks.

The app includes tips on keeping children safe as well as specific guidance on what to do in those first few crucial hours after a child goes missing. Links to additional resources for families and victims are provided as well.

The app is available for I-Phone & Android Operating systems and can be downloaded for free from your APP store.
 
 
 
Please be assured that no information on your child will be collected or stored by the FBI unless you provide it during an emergency.
