DNA Profiles for Children
The reasons vary as to why some parents request DNA profiles for children. Most often, they are planning for a worst-case scenario, like a kidnapping, if the child runs away or gets lost, or if the kid is involved in some other crime where they would need to be identified.
Prior to recent technology, well-prepared parents would keep a record of their child’s height, weight, recent photo and fingerprint.
But a simple cheek swab to collect a child’s DNA has advanced the basic children’s profile and added depth and security to the “just in case” and “what if” scenarios.
As one article on NBCNews, “CSI Parents Swabbing Kids for DNA” said of DNA profiles for kids,
“It is kind of like an insurance policy you hope you never use.”
