Sponsor a Digital ID Event for Children and Help the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children Prepare Parents to Be Prepared.
The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) recommends updating your child's photos every six months. The Family Protection Edition, which is supported by NCMEC, allows you to do this by adding new pictures to the database as your children grow.
Family Trusted® Digital ID is a software program on a floppy disk that stores a child’s digital photographs and important identifying information. In the case of a missing child emergency, all pertinent information and photographs can be quickly delivered electronically to authorities and as part of the “missing child” photo distribution system of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC). Speed is critical in a missing child emergency, since the chances of a safe recovery are much greater in the first few hours.
Retailers, community groups, pediatrician offices, and businesses run local, regional and national Family Trusted Digital ID events and programs at which parents are given a floppy disk that contains the only copy made of their child’s photographs and identifying information. Events are well attended and generate tremendous goodwill.
Family Trusted Products, LLC created Family Trusted Digital ID at the request of NCMEC to help NCMEC fulfill its mission to bring missing children home safely. Family Trusted Digital ID is NCMEC’s approved form of standard digital identification for children and includes the many legal and information requirements that are necessary to launch an immediate and effective missing child search.
The Family Trusted Digital ID kit is available for purchase from Family Trusted Products. A kit includes a digital camera and floppy disks for 200 children. The mechanics of running and publicizing events are simple and easy to follow. If you are interested in learning more, please click the link below to visit their web site.
