Making use of technology for our children’s safety

Public Affairs Office and Directorate of Emergency Services NTC and Fort Irwin

The Department of Justice reported that nearly 800,000 children are reported missing each year. That’s more than 2000 children per day. The faster the word gets out through law enforcement and media alerts, the more likely a missing child will be found safely.

“National Center for Missing & Exploited Children urges parents or guardians to maintain easily accessible, good-quality photographs of their children,” states Ernie Allen, President and CEO of NCMEC. “SafeAssured helps them accomplish this.”
A SafeAssured mini-CD offers a single storehouse of information containing the following details on children:

  • Up to ten digital fingerprints
  • Digital photograph
  • General physical description
  • Streaming video showing mannerism and gait
  • Voice track providing the youth’s voice inflection and accent
  • Vital personal information, (street address, date of birth, life threatening medical conditions, identifying scars or marks, and tattoos)
  • Family Code
  • Ability to create missing person poster from the mini-CD
  • Parents keep the CD that can assist any police station if child becomes missing.

The service is free for Fort Irwin Military Families. For more information contact Thomas Boggs, Fort Irwin Physical Security Office, at 380-1911. Parents can also attend a SafeAssured event at Cracker Jack Flats Community Center the second Saturday of each month from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
