Virginia Partners With National Child ID Program To Distribute Kits

Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares and legendary Virginia Tech football coach Frank Beamer announce a partnership with the National Child ID Program to provide child ID kits to students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades across the Commonwealth. The National Child ID Program was created by football coaches in 1997 following the abduction and death of Amber Hagerman, the namesake for the Amber Alert. Since then, over 75 million child ID kits have been distributed nationally via public-private partnerships.
