In America, local police departments are informing the public about the new FBI Child ID Application which can be downloaded for free from the Android Apps section of Google Play or through iTunes.
The software will let parents store pictures and vital information about their children in case they go missing later. It is designed for all ages, from a young child to a teenager.
As well as storing pictures of the children, the application can also store physical identifiers such as height and weight. This means that security officers or police officers have plenty of information on hand to help find the missing children. There is also an option to email the information directly to the police. The software also includes detailed help information on what you should do to keep your children safe, as well as how to deal with a missing child in the first couple of hours.
Our American readers can download the software here.
