Why Your Kids Needs an ID Document

13274974_10201953726202006_1278226060_oDo you have an ID document for your child? Though no one wants to think about it, approximately 2,000 children are reported missing every day. Many of those children show up or are found, but to facilitate quickly finding a missing child, an ID document can be very helpful.

It’s a relatively easy to be prepared for this emergency. Having your child’s biographical information in one document is very important.

Consider including the following info:

  • Full name
  • Any nicknames
  • Gender
  • Height and weight
  • Eye and hair color
  • Place and date of birth
  • Race
  • Social security number
  • Distinguishing marks
  • A recent, clear picture of your child
  • Your address
  • The child’s school, dentist and doctor
  • Your child’s finger prints

All of this information will need to be updated yearly.

As a leader in the security industry, Guardian Protection Services has brought peace of mind to families, homes, and businesses for more than 50 years. Community partnership is key to our mission of spreading the word about our valuable products and services. Through the GuardianKids I.D.
