NCMEC Launches Free Child Safety App

November 7, 2016

Safety Central

The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) has launched a free child safety app to help parents and law enforcement when a child goes missing. The app, Safety Central, provides the latest news, media, and child safety tips from NCMEC. The app is designed as a digital child ID kit that allows parents to save children’s information, including photos and digital fingerprint images. It also includes a search feature for current missing children. OJJDP provides funding to support NCMEC to help prevent child abduction and sexual exploitation, find missing children, and provide technical assistance and training to victims, their families, and the professionals who serve them.


Access OJJDP resources for families of missing or exploited children on OJJDP.gov and the Missing and Exploited Children's Program websites.
