The Georgia Child Identification Program (GACHIP) returns this year. GACHIP gives families a measure of protection against the disappearance of a child and provides law enforcement with important tools to assist in the speedy and safe recovery of a child. A single photo, fingerprinting, short video interview, dental imprint and DNA sample (from a mouth swab) of the child are compiled to a CD and given to the parents.
