NATIONAL MISSING CHILDREN’S DAY
In 1983, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed May 25 to be National Missing Children’s Day with the intent to honor the nation’s commitment to finding missing children.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) urges parents to take 25 minutes to talk with their children about safety. They have provided 25 tips to protect kids at home, at school, in public and on the internet.
You can find that information here.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is asking people to visit its website and see if they recognize any of the missing children whose photos are posted there. The agency has also launched a new version of its free Child ID app designed specifically for Android-based phones. An Apple version is also available. The app enables parents to store pictures and vital information about their child in case they go missing and allows them to easily provide that information to authorities.
The AFCA’s National Child ID Program in-home inkless fingerprint and DNA kit is the only FBI approved identification kit of its kind.
Thanks to our partnership with the Society of Former FBI Agents, the Dunwoody Police Department will offer FREE child ID kits (while supplies last) at our headquarters May 18 – May 26, 2013. We are open 24/7, so stop by anytime!
