The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® provides safety and prevention resources for families and professionals focusing on child abduction, child sexual exploitation, and internet safety.
Resources & Tools for Parents
Thanks to the generous support of our partner Emcor, NCMEC has been able to create a cutting-edge child safety app called Safety Central. At its core, Safety Central is a digital Child ID kit, allowing parents to keep critical information about their child, such as digital fingerprints and updated photos, right at their fingertips. Safety Central also allows users to stay up to date on the latest safety information from NCMEC, search for missing children, and much more. No smartphone? No Problem!
