Child DNA ID: How Advanced Technology Could Save Your Child

woman talking to doctor about how child DNA ID could protect her daughter

The world we live in today may be safer than ever due to our amazing advances in technology. However, it doesn’t mean that there aren’t any threats to our families out there. Keep peace of mind and know your children can be found in the event of an emergency by creating a DNA identification profile.

Child Identification Profile

The FBI recommends that every family keep a child identification profile (or child ID) for each child in the family. In the event of an emergency, the child ID will help law enforcement search for and locate your child. Law enforcement will find your child ID, especially the DNA profile, invaluable during their investigation.

FBI Suggested Child ID Contents

  • One recent photo — a school picture is perfect
  • Hair and eye colors
  • Height and weight (update occasionally)
  • Birthmarks or unique physical attributes
  • Fingerprints
  • A DNA profile

Uses For a DNA Profile

Your child’s DNA profile will also prove useful in the following situations:

  • The obvious first reason would in the event of a kidnapping or if your child gets lost.
  • If you are separated from your child in the event of a natural disaster like a tornado, earthquake, hurricane, fire, or other disasters.
  • Your child could suffer a brain injury or be unconscious after an accident with no ID, a DNA profile can help to avoid hospital mix-ups.
  • For the evaluation of genetic health risks. This is especially helpful in cases of adoption, where your child’s genetic background and health history may not be known.
  • Considering recent years and events, a DNA profile can help in the case of a dangerous or large-scale attack, where you may be separated from your child
