Sign4l

When every second counts

In the event that a child gets lost in a public area, on their way home or, possibly even disappearing altogether, a complete and up-to-date description of the child can save valuable time and will allow law enforcement to respond more quickly in initiating searches for the missing child.

Thanks to a generous grant by Telus Community Board, the Missing Children’s Network created Sign4l, an application that is available free of charge on most Apple and Android smartphones. Sign4l allows parents to store up-to-date photos and vital physical descriptions of their child which they can then instantly email or text to the relevant authorities, allowing them to save time in the event of an emergency.

The information that is saved by parents on their child is not stored in any database. Only parents or guardians will be able to access their children’s data sheet.

Parents can also rely on the reminder function, which varies according to the age of the child, allowing them to update their child’s profile at any time in the application. SIGN4L also includes safety tips for children as well as the 4 crucial steps to follow in the moments following the disappearance of a child.

The Service de Police de la Ville de Montréal welcomes any initiative that allows parents to act quickly when a child goes missing or runs away.
