Since 1997, Canon U.S.A. and NCMEC have collaborated to educate the public about the growing issue of child abduction. The Canon4Kids program, a partnership between Canon U.S.A. and NCMEC, donates products to help law enforcement quickly disseminate photos and information about missing children, and educates parents about tips for taking and maintaining updated photos of their kids. To date, Canon has donated more than 2,500 pieces of digital photographic and imaging technology equipment to assist law enforcement agencies throughout the United States and Puerto Rico in the recovery of missing children.
