Surprised Kid

We have all heard horror stories of child abductions. The safety of our children should be a number one concern. Most child abduction cases are resolved within a few hours but many result in tragedy. Of all reported child abductions, 49% are abducted by family, 27% by acquaintances, and 24% by strangers. Of this 24%, one in four are not found alive. This is an extremely difficult situation to cope with for any parent. While we all hope and pray never to be faced with this type of situation, it is always best to be proactive – especially when it comes to our children. A KidScan Doc can be an extremely important piece of information, should such a situation occur.

Proper child identification is crucial

When the unthinkable happens
being prepared can save a life

New York Fingerprints’s system comes with capabilities for recording pertinent physical descriptions and demographics, including fingerprints and photographs. While this information seems rather basic, parents are typically too distraught to recall details that can make law enforcement’s job easier. A KidScan Doc can help save valuable time once a child is reported missing, assisting first responders in identifying the child quickly and returning them to their parents unharmed.
