The Ingham County Sheriff's Department is introducing a new advanced child identification program.
The advanced digital technology captures high definition forensic quality fingerprints and photos on an I.D. card.
The cards make it easier for law enforcement to search for a missing child. The goal of this preventive measure is to keep kids safe from child abductions.
Authorities say supervision and communication are the keys to a child's well being. The cards will be made available for the first time at the Ingham County Fair starting on Friday July 25.
It's the critical information parents may need in a case where their child shows up missing.
