Jamaica Square issues first municipal child ID cards of the macronational community
The National Child Identification Program (NCIDP) was created in 1997 by the American Football Coaches Association, as a community service initiative to help protect America’s youth, and change the statistics related to missing children. Approximately 800,000 children go missing every year. That’s one child every 40 seconds.
Currently there are active NCIDP programs in 13 states (out of 50). The reason there are so few active programs should be fairly obvious once the details are given. The NCIDP provides parents and guardians with a convenient way to record their child’s fingerprints and physical characteristics on a card they can keep at home. Of course, many parents are uncomfortable with their child’s fingerprints even if they are kept at home.
On 8 March 2010, the world’s first municipal child ID cards for a macronational city were issued by the city of Jamaica Square, Independent Long Island (ILI). There was no need for fingerprints or other invasions of privacy, however, and the Mayor of Jamaica Square is going to thumb his nose, again, at Montevideo Convention extremists in the micronational community, who still believe ID cards or passports should be issued only by territorial micronations, even though child ID cards can be made, and are made by several private firms for parents and guardians, because there is an obvious need for them.
We believe the security of our loved ones is too precious a thing to be left entirely to the whim of Official World governments, and so two cards were issued to the nieces of the Mayor of Jamaica Square.
Clarissa said the cards are cool!
