DETAILS: Contact Information, fingerprints, photos, video interview and DNA swabs are collected from each child in minutes.  EZ Child ID Kit scans all 10 fingerprints in a matter of seconds.  The parents receive two ID cards and a CD ROM.  All files are permanently deleted after each child has completed the kit.

VISUALS & INTERVIEW OPPORTUNITIES: Children conducting video interviews and taking photos, parents and their reactions to news of children that have recently gone missing, and much more…
