CQI encourages all families of school age children to obtain a Child I.D. Kit for each child in your family.

Photo Identification (I.D.)

Families should have current photographs of their children. These photographs can often be obtained free-of-charge or for a nominal fee from a number of sources. The photograph should be a full-face shot in color, and capture the way children really look (school pictures are GREAT!).

Photographs should be taken at least every six months and kept in a safe and readily accessible place (CQI will take your child’s photo, with your permission, at the listed events above).

In addition to the photograph, parents and guardians should also have a written description of their children.

Digital Fingerprints

Fingerprints are used for identification. They should be recorded on a paper stock that will be usable for loading in the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s National Crime Information Center, if your child should become missing.


All documents are for YOU TO KEEP. All personal information is permanently deleted from our computer after each child is fingerprinted. 

We recommend you store your photo I.D. and digital fingerprints in a safe and secure place (i.e. with other important documents).

Keeping Hope Alive

It is CQI’s hope that through open communication and education, parents will never need to use this resource. But as we always say, it is better to be safe than sorry.

*All services are on a first-come, first-served bases while supplies last. CQI does not store any personal information on fingerprint device. All personal information is permanently deleted from computer after each child is fingerprinted. Schedules are subject to change. Additional dates may be added as they become available.
