CP4Kids’ Child ID Program provides a vital resource to parents if their child would go missing, regardless of the reason. When a digital child ID is created, the parents leave the event with an Amber Alert certified CD or USB drive with complete information on their child. The electronic file contains photos, a complete set of digital fingerprints, a voice print and video of the child. If a child is missing and considered in danger, this information may be prudent to have an Amber Alert issued.
The B-SAFE program is a workshop designed to educate both parents and children on the dangers from predators in today’s high tech world. From cyberbullying, sexting, child pornography, and groming for abduction and sex traffiking, all families need to be aware of the risks kids face online and how to effectively avoid them. The online risks to children drastically decrease from proper education and communication – children are taught how to recognize danger and remove themselves from the situation.
The B-SAFE Program is available in age appropriate modules, ages 3 – 9 & 10 – 17.
