Free Digital Fingerprinting for Kids

Keeping track of your child' personal ID is extremely important, especially if he or she is ever kidnapped. And that's why three organizations are teaming up to help.

Court TV, Lysol brand, and Kroger grocery stores partnered over the weekend to provide free digital fingerprinting for kids. They also took pictures and printed out the information for parents.

Organizers say it's a way to give families some peace of mind should something ever happen. "You never know how many lives it may save--it may not save any, but it may save 100," said tour manager Cashis Wesley. "Even if it saves one or gives parents some type of security that they didn't have, it's worth it."

The digital fingerprinting will take place again on Thursday, August 25, at the Kroger on East Gwinnett Street from 9am until noon, and then at the Kroger on Johnny Mercer Boulevard from 3pm until 6pm.
