The CHILD SAFETY SCENT KIT is easy to use and it only takes a few minutes to SWIPE, SEAL, and STORE a person’s unique odor and be ready with an uncontaminated scent article for K9 responders to begin searching to find your missing loved one fast and bring them home safe.
Each Child Safety Kit Includes:
- Specialized Evidence-grade Jar

A person’s scent is as unique as their fingerprint and can last up to 10 years when stored in our scientifically-tested life-saving kit. Having a scent kit prepared can significantly increase a dog’s ability to locate a child and reduces the time it takes responders to bring them home safely. Great for kids who like to camp, hike, fish, or play in the great outdoors.
Our Child Safety Kit can be applied in minutes and contains our standard Scent Preservation Kit® and Child ID kit with fingerprint/DNA collection materials.
In addition to providing responders with an uncontaminated scent article to conduct an accurate search, the Scent Kit® contains our Individual Preparedness Plan Flash Drive that allows family members and caregivers to prefill valuable information to help responders identify and locate the missing person. It also includes a section for person-centered trauma-informed information that alerts responders to potential triggers that may upset the person and comforting methods to help calm them. Having this information not only helps emergency responders locate the individual faster, but it reduces the risk of trauma caused by the missing person event.
When a loved one goes missing, emotions and safety concerns are at their highest level. To help you be prepared for an event, the Individual Preparedness Plan Flash Drive also contains Missing Person Reporting Guidelines so that you will know just what to do if someone goes missing.

Why Do I Need A Child Safety Scent Kit?
4.5 Million people have gone missing in the past 20 years. When Scent Evidence K9 hosted kidnap victim and child safety advocate, Elizabeth Smart, during Florida’s 2018 Children’s Week event, we were reminded that the unthinkable can happen to people from every walk of life. Children with Autism are even more at risk to wander and go missing. The American Pediatrics Association states that children with autism have an almost 50% chance of going missing at least once before age 17.
Preserving scent gives those you love and care for an extra layer of protection should they go missing. It’s like “peace of mind in a jar.”
The Child Safety Kit – An Extra Layer of Protection
The Child Safety Kit® is a great addition to your proactive family protection plan. Especially for those in the Sandwich Generation where nearly half (47%) of adults in their 40s and 50s have a parent age 65 or older and are raising a young child. As Autism and Alzheimer’s diagnoses increase, the need for an affordable extra layer of protection becomes even more valuable. While GPS tracking devices can also be utilized for location, they are very expensive, (often hundreds of dollars), require monitoring fees to operate, batteries can die unexpectedly, and they can be taken off, lost, broken, or simply out of range. A person can’t lose their scent. It’s like a fingerprint for scent discriminate K9s. Studies show that our Scent Preservation Kit® can safely preserve a person’s scent for up to 10 years. And, the average cost of an individual kit is about $20.
