Indiana AG Kicks Off Indiana Child ID Kit Program to Protect Kids

The program will provide a Safety Gameplan to K-5 students.

INDIANAPOLIS – Attorney General Todd Rokita today announced all Indiana kindergarten through 5th grade students will receive a child ID kit this fall.

The first of its kind program is aimed at protecting children from human trafficking.

On average, 1,000 children go missing across the U.S. every day.

 “Human trafficking is on the rise and our open border policies have brought it right to our front door,” said Attorney General Rokita. “That is why I have filed multiple lawsuits to secure our southern border. Our office fights to keep criminals on appeal behind bars, we protect victims of crimes like human trafficking through our Address Confidentiality Program, and now we have built a coalition of community leaders to provide kits to all K-5 students this fall free of charge to Hoosier families.”

Child ID kits give parents a tool to provide detailed information, a photograph, fingerprint, and DNA to law enforcement quickly. Completed kits are kept in a safe place at home, out of a database, so parents are prepared if the unthinkable happens.

Kits will be distributed by Superintendents and School Resource Officers to all k-5 schools across the state. The Indiana Association of Chiefs of Police will also distribute kits to local law enforcement.
