The Orange County Sheriff’s Office in Orlando Florida investigates 2500 missing persons reports every year. A simple but helpful new program is being tested for missing children. The Safe Assured Identification kit includes the Florida child’s photo, ten digital fingerprints, a voice recording of the child, and other personal information stored on an encrypted mini compact disc or computer file.
If a child is reported missing, this digital information can be sent out to law enforcement and government officials involved in the search for the missing child.
I believe that this type of program should be offered in all counties in Florida. Some may worry about the misuse of such information; however, I believe that the benefits far outweigh any speculative theories of misuse. >Orange County Amount First to Offer Digital Safety Program for Children.
