(WIAT) – Thanks to a new security effort at one Cullman County school, information and identification now on record could help locate several hundred children in case of an abduction.

244 students at Vinemont Elementary participated in a digital identification program recently.

Each student was interviewed on camera,  fingerprinted and photographed from all angles.

The information is compiled into a digital I.D. packet for his parents to hand over to law enforcement if their child goes missing.

Principal Tony Johnson says most parents do not have their child fingerprinted.

The service is offered free of charge by the Grand Masonic Lodge of Alabama.
