Purpose of the Child ID FileImagine that one second your child is by your side, and the next second he or she is gone. It's a parent's worst nightmare. Having the needed information readily available the first few moments of the search can be invaluable to law enforcement authorities. Realizing this, Sheriff Greg Champagne is making available free Child ID Files for your children.
Chances are you'll never need to use the file, but why take the risk? Many children disappear each year, whether they are runaways or kidnapped victims. No matter why a child is missing, finding that child quickly is vital and a Child ID File can help.
The St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office offers free child fingerprinting and a booklet about keeping a Child ID File.
