CHILD SAFETY KITS

You can make a child safety kit at home by purchasing Sterile Swabs from your local pharmacy or online to obtain a DNA sample. Use an unused Ziploc bag to store hair samples. You can order Fingerprint ID cards and ink on Amazon. Print form above to record information. Be sure to print a current picture of your child to keep with the identification information and update every 6-12 months.

OR

Visit https://childidprogram.com/ to order a kit. These kits have been recommended by the FBI and a link to the article can be accessed HERE. There is a fee for each kit ordered so if you have multiple children, it may be more cost effective to make your own.

You can also contact your local Police Department as many offer free Child ID Safety kits.

BE AWARE:

There are multiple websites that claim they will send free Child Safety Kits. Some of these sites are linked to Globe Life Insurance Company. Globe Life is the parent company to the following:

American Income Life Insurance Company

Globe Life Insurance Company of New York

Globe Life Family Heritage Division

Globe Life Liberty National Division

National Income Life Insurance Company

United American Insurance Company

Globe life is using websites that offer Child Safety kits as a marketing ploy to sell life insurance. 

Websites known: www.childsafekit.com, www.childsafeidkit.com, www.mcgruffsafekit.com.

NEVER give your child's information to a stranger. The only time you should ever give this information is if your child goes missing and it should only be given to the proper authorities. Child Safety Kits are for you to KEEP in order to have information at the ready if ever needed.

Any individual or entity that claims to offer free kits and says they need to meet in person to deliver a kit or interview is a SCAM. DO NOT give them information.
