CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. - It only involves a picture and some fingerprints, but experts say it could make a huge difference when it comes to your child's safety.

Compared to just one year ago, the MoCHip program says it's doubled it's requests for child ID kits.

"Parents are always interested in keeping their child safe," said Ruth Ann Orr, principal at Alma Schrader Elementary in Cape Girardeau.

The school wanted to bring in a popular ID program last year for their Fun Day, but couldn't because of scheduling conflicts.  This year they used school pictures and a different program for parents to create their own kits.
