This isn't a hinderance to kidnapping, but the program was created to assist law enforcement in recovering the missing child. Many of the system's
have the ability to spit [sic] out a CD that, in the event of a missing child, could be uploaded straight to the Amber Alert system nationwide
And it is not saved on a database. The final product, whether it is a CD or paper card, is given to the parent
and all the information is
deleted off the computer (which it was never SAVED in the first place).
The CHIP increases those chances of recovering the child.

missing child. Among all the States and Countries that have the program, basic bio information is taken, fingerprints, and a picture. Some states
include additional services such as dental impressions, DNA swab, voice recording, or video recording. As I said above, ALL information is deleted
after the product is given to the parents. This is given to the parents free of charge.
I am very passionate about the program. I am bringing it to Idaho. My Lodge just purchased a system, my SD is leading the Lodge committee and I
would like to run the State committee (I think I will be asked). We already working with many businesses to host some events. I am looking to expand
to hold events with law enforcement, family readiness groups (military), fairs, and schools.
