Camera phones offer safety factor for children

In this busy shopping season, it's easy to get separated from our kids. A quick and simple way to help find them is to use your camera phone.

Before you leave the house, take a quick picture of them. If needed, you can immediately send the photo to the police showing exactly what they look like, and what they are wearing.

It won't cost you a cent, and it only takes a second to shoot the picture. You can also do this every morning when they leave for school. A simple, yet effective way to protect our loved ones.
