Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office District 5 is urging parents to take advantage of a free child ID app that stores vital information, including photos, of their children right on mobile devices. The free app is called “FBI Child ID.” The FBI Child ID app, the first mobile application created by the FBI, provides a convenient place to electronically store photos and other vital information about children so that it’s literally right at hand when needed. Through the app, parents can show the pictures and provide physical identifiers such as height and weight to security or police officers on the spot. Using a special tab on the app, parents can also quickly and easily e-mail the information to authorities with a few clicks. More information is available here.
