Child ID[En español abajo] An estimated 460,000 children are reported missing every year in the United States. The timely and accurate distribution of child identification information plays a critical role in locating missing children. Volunteers from the Child ID Program will be at the Aldine Library on Thursday, February 21, at 10:30 am to make FREE ID cards for your kids. This ID system was created with help from law enforcement officials to ensure it captures all of the vital information required by the Amber Alert system. They are completely free, and the process only takes about 5 minutes per child. No information about the child is kept by anyone other than the parent or guardian.
