Have an ID kit is a simple yet effective tool to help families maintain current photos of and descriptive information about their selves.
Jessica’s Law Now agrees with law enforcement that parents need to fingerprint their children, as well as family members. A child’s appearance will change, as one’s child is growing. Fingerprinting and DNA are the best ways to identify a growing child.
Ensure your families security by keeping a Family Identification Kit. This will help document your family’s privacy and identifying information. Each family member will have a record of their fingerprints, updated photographs, and DNA.
