Child Identification Program
BAC is teaming up with the National Child Identification Program to provide the Child ID Kit to our members in the U.S. and Canada to help make sure our families and communities are as safe as possible.
The Child 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, the Child ID Kit will give authorities vital information to assist their efforts to locate a missing child. Having your child or grandchild's fingerprints and DNA on hand before tragedy strikes will dramatically improve the chances that she or he can be located and safely returned.
For more information, please contact the IU at 202.383.3934.
