The Warren County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) announced that they have received National Child Identification Program Kits from the office of Virginia’s Attorney General.

The kits will start to be distributed to Warren County and Skyline Middle Schools the week of May 15.

The kits are to be kept at home by the parents or guardians who will obtain easy-to-get personal information from their child.

Should a child become lost or missing the kit is to be turned over to the sheriff’s office.

This gives authorities a strong head start providing over 90 percent of the information needed to help find the child.

For over 25 years these kits have helped safeguard over 75 million families across North America.

Each kit will come with easy-to-use instructions and storage information when distributed.

In America 1,000 children go missing on an average day.

These National Child ID kits help authorities and families better safeguard their children.
