Just Be Safe Child Protection Day

What would you do if your child went missing?


Statistics show that more than 800,000 children in America go missing each year - one child every forty seconds, yet 34% of parents in the United States don't know their child's exact weight, height and eye color. Of those 800,000, 450,000 run away, 300,000 are abducted by family members and over 50,000 are abducted by non-family members. When a child is reported missing, we've learned that time can be the greatest adversary.


"Just Be Safe" Child Protection Day

Sponsored by: RobertsLaw and Jerseyville Banking Center 


Families who participate will receive a free FBI -approved ID Kit and can receive assistance from volunteers including federal, state, county and local law enforcement officials. The Kit contains a fingerprinting card and DNA collection swabs that, when completed, are to be maintained for safe-keeping by the parents. The Kit also includes a wallet Card for parents to carry with them at all times.
The "Just Be Safe" Child ID and Protection Day will also feature information and displays on vital child safety topics including child safety seats, fire education, drug abuse education and internet safety.
