FBI Launches Child ID Mobile AppThe
Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has launched its first mobile application—the Child ID App. This free mobile app provides a convenient place to electronically store photos and vital information about one’s
children that can be easily provided to authorities if a child goes missing. The app allows users to send information—including pictures or other physical identifiers such as height
and weight—to authorities with a few clicks. It also provides tips on keeping children safe and guidance on what to
do in the first few crucial hours after a child goes missing. The Child ID App is currently available for use on iPhones and can be downloaded for free from the App Store on iTunes.
The FBI is planning to expand the tool to other types of mobile devices in the near future. Resources:Learn

What is Celebrate Safe Communities?Celebrate Safe Communities (CSC) is a U.S. Department of Justice-supported
initiative designed to help spotlight communities’ crime prevention efforts, enhance public awareness of vital crime
prevention and safety messages, and recruit year-round support for ongoing prevention activities that help keep neighborhoods
safe from crime. This initiative will help local communities organize safety-focused events. Local CSC activities held
in October to coincide with Crime Prevention Month will help Americans of all ages recognize that a safer community is no
accident and that crime prevention is everyone’s business every day of the year.
