Child ID kits distributed to young Ky. students

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Hundreds of thousands of child identification kits have been distributed to students across Kentucky.

The kits are given out through the American Football Coaches Association and the FBI's National Child ID Program with other partners.

Through a grant from the Wal-Mart Foundation, public school districts have received the kits for kindergarten through third-grade students.

The FBI says the kit is the only one of its kind approved by the agency. It allows parents to collect a child's identifiable information such as fingerprints, DNA, physical characteristics and picture and store it at home for use in an emergency.
