Press release from: Child Alert System

3-D imaging technology provided by Child Alert Systems increases facial recognition of missing children by 600% to 800%. The service is complimentary to schools and group organizations that purchase the national child alert system in bulk.

3-D imaging technology provided by Child Alert Systems increases facial recognition of missing children by 600% to 800%. The service is complimentary to schools and group organizations that purchase the national child alert system in bulk.

Last Saturday, the little league team in Gordonville Virginia lined up to have their pictures taken with a state of the art 3-D image processing system.

The 3-D camera, which captures trillions of points of data with infrared technology, will be a critical tool in helping law enforcement and the public to locate these children should they ever go lost or missing.

“Facial recognition with 3-D imagery is 600% to 800% times greater than with a standard two dimensional photograph. Because we see in three dimensions, it is very difficult for us to identify someone we’ve never met from a two dimensional image. These 3-D images can be rotated on a computer screen to give a very accurate likeliness of a child’s face from every angle,” says Tom Schlegel, CEO of Child Alert System (

The company’s national child alert system product provides parents with a system to digitally store critical information about their child in a secure online database and on a durable metal USB Keychain. The information stored in the system gives law enforcement instant access to all information needed to issue an Amber Alert and begin an effective search in the event that a child goes missing.

The online Child Alert System includes storage of photos, maps of a child’s favorite places, full biographical information, and access to the ‘Kidz Blast’ system which allows parents to issue an email and cell phone text alert to hundreds of contacts at the click of a button. The complete Child Alert System Kit includes fingerprint cards and ink strips, DNA collection kit and storage services, fully automated missing child poster creation, and more.

As an added benefit, large groups such as schools, youth organizations, and churches that purchase the system in bulk, can receive 3-D imaging services at no cost. The Child Alert System team will arrive on-location to capture 3-D images of all children in the group, issuing a digital file to parents and organizations for use in emergency situations.

Child Alert System will begin its national media tour in late April to include more than 35 major morning and evening news programs. The company's mission is to protect more than 4 million families in 2008.
