Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) January 3, 2005
In response to the more than 2,000 missing children reported in the United States each day, DIGIKIDSÂ® recently unveiled its new Child ID Kit that allows parents to provide law enforcement officials, the media, the NCMEC and other agencies with two high-resolution photos along with medical and identifying information to aid in recovery efforts. According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), far too many parents are not prepared to act in a missing child emergency. Most importantly, DIGIKIDSÂ® Quick ResponseÂ software can get this vital information into the hands of authorities anywhere in the world within minutes.
According to the NCMEC, acting within the first 20 minutes following a disappearance is absolutely critical. By utilizing DIGIKIDSÂ® business card-sized CD-ROM (easily carried in a pocket or purse) which operates in any PC with a CD-ROM drive, parents are only moments away from distributing pre-formatted flyers and posters Â complete with high-resolution photos and last-minute details Â anywhere in the world via internet email. ÂThe electronic delivery to law enforcement officials of a childÂs digitized photo can save crucial time, since the chances of safely recovering a child are much greater within the first few hours immediately following a child abduction,Â says John Walsh, founder of the NCMEC (NCMEC.org).
Statistics show that one out of six missing children are recovered as a direct result of someone in the general public recognizing their picture and then notifying authorities. ÂWhen you are trying to find your child, the most important thing is to immediately get quality, up to date photos to authorities and in front of the public,Â says DIGIKIDSÂ® founder Michael Childs. ÂOur Child ID Kit also includes the identification tools of DNA, fingerprints and dental charts, but our focus has been to develop the best product on the market for the mass distribution of high-quality photos and identifying information in the shortest amount of time.Â
The DIGIKIDSÂ® Child ID Kit is available through schools, daycares and business-sponsored Safety Events for $15.95. For more information on how to find or sponsor local events, or to start a DIGIKIDSÂ® business in your city, please visit http://www.digikids-id.com or call 1-888-DIGIKIDS.
Utilizing patent-pending technology in the making of each Child ID, DIGIKIDSÂ® never creates a database of any kind, and emergency emails and attachments are sent through a dedicated, secure network. DIGIKIDSÂ® is located in Fort Worth, Texas and distributes its products through independent franchisees. Franchise opportunities are available for single or multiple territory development.
