Developed by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, the leading nonprofit in the fight to keep children safe, Safety Central is designed to make sure that parents have the tools they need to help them protect their families and act quickly should their children go missing.
At the core of Safety Central is a digital Child ID Kit. One of the most important tools for law enforcement when searching for a missing child is an up-to-date, good quality photo along with descriptive information. A Child ID kit is a simple yet effective way to keep those tools right at your fingertips. The app, which does not share any of your personal information, reminds you when it’s time to update your photos and allows you to store potentially life-saving information about your children in an easily accessible location.
Safety Central does much more than keep track of your personal child ID kit! You can download educational tips and resources from NCMEC’s award-winning educational team, stay up to date on news and events and help law enforcement find missing kids. Users can also join our mission by donating to NCMEC directly through the app. Safety Central is a free download thanks to a generous gift from NCMEC’s partner, EMCOR.
When more families and law enforcement have access to the resources like those found in Safety Central, families can be better educated about the risks their children face, law enforcement will have more tools at their disposal, more missing children will come home safely and more children will have the childhoods they deserve, free from victimization.
