Free Digital I.D. Kits for Kids

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Farmers Insurance is working to help provide parents with digital I.D. kits for their kids in the event they are ever kidnapped or missing.

The insurance company along with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, have been creating these free kits for parents all over the country and now they are bringing the service to Washington.

An agent will take an updated digital picture of your child, take their fingerprints, height and put all the information on a CD for you that you can easily pass over to police and other missing children's databases.

Kathryn Rose is a Farmers Insurance Agent in Yakima, and was distributing the kits today in Yakima.

"The National Center for Missing Children approached Farmers Insurance on wanting to come up with some software that incorporates digital imaging for children so we could get a digital picture to amber alerts in a faster manner," said Rose.

Farmers Insurance has their booth set up at many community events throughout the year. Today they were at Eisenhower High School for their Track and Field day.

Parents can also bring their kids into any Farmer's Insurance agent and get the I.D. kits there.
