Our Child ID Events are held monthly at our various Fitzgerald locations. Parent will receive a Child ID CD including digital fingerprints, picture ID, and voice recognition. All information is stored on a re-writeable CD that is given to participants and can be updated as the need arises. This information is not stored in our database, so there is no need for worrying about confidentiality of the child. This information is endorsed by the Maryland State Police, Montgomery County Police AND The National Center for Exploited & Missing Children.
We follow guidelines set-forth by the Maryland State & Montgomery County Police for digital fingerprints and photographs including the following recommendations:
Photography: Children under age 5 should have a new photo taken every 6 months, children over 5, yearly.
