Fingerprinting and DNA
Each year, nearly 800,000 children are reported missing.
No fingerprinting had been done on the vast majority and have never had samples of their DNA taken since birth.
That makes it even harder for law enforcement to find them.
When we think about fingerprinting or DNA, we usually associate the idea with maybe a crime or some kind of negative outcome due to crime.
Although law officials must acquire these records, it is in our best intentions to explain to our children that this process is a way of protecting our loved ones.
Controversy over the issue of obtaining these records has raised many questions from parents since the idea was introduced years ago.
Despite all the questions, we might find it necessary to keep a copy of our childs prints just for safe keeping. As a parent I would hate to regret if I ever needed the information and it wasn't available.
Needless to say, I hope the day will never come that I need to provide my childs DNA (or any identification for that matter!) to the police.
