CanonCanon4Kids Program : In August 2005, Hurricanes Katrina and Rita resulted in devastating loss for the Gulf Coast of the United States. The city of New Orleans was particularly impacted and they are still working to rebuild from the disaster. Today, digital imaging equipment donated to the New Orleans Police Department by Canon USA, Inc., through the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children will further help in the rebuilding efforts. A Canon digital camera, scanner, camcorder, printer and copier were presented to the Juvenile Division of the New Orleans Police Department at the International Homicide Investigators Association's Annual Training Symposium. The donation is made possible by the Canon4Kids program.

The program distributes equipment to law enforcement and educates parents and guardians about tips for taking and maintaining updated photos of their children, one of the most important tools available in case a child is missing. As part of the program, more than 600 pieces of donated Canon equipment (digital cameras, fax-phones, printers and scanners) have been distributed to law-enforcement agencies in 37 states, Puerto Rico and internationally. "Supporting the efforts of law enforcement professionals is a vital part of NCMEC's mission," said Ernie Allen, president and chief executive officer, NCMEC. "We are honored to collaborate with our long time partner Canon USA to help support the New Orleans Police Department in the important work that they do."

Hurrican Katrina & Rita - Canon digital technology
In the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, NCMEC sent Team ADAM consultants equipped with Canon digital technology to the affected areas in Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas to help identify and reunite children and families that had been displaced by the storms. On March 16, 2006, the last of 5,192 missing or displaced children reported to NCMEC's Katrina Missing Persons Hotline was reunited with their family. "Through our partnership with NCMEC, we hope to let everyone know that digital photographs can play a key role in helping law enforcement locate missing or displaced children," said Joe Adachi, president and chief executive officer, Canon USA "The ability to help law enforcement, such as the New Orleans Police Department, reunite children with their families using our technology is very gratifying for our entire company."

Canon & NCMEC - Canon4Kids
Canon USA and NCMEC have collaborated since 1997 to raise public awareness about the growing issue of child abduction. The current Canon4Kids program also features pictures of missing children along with NCMEC hotline in various venues. To date, 230 children's photos have been submitted to Canon and 118 have been recovered. As part of the effort, PGA TOUR golfer Briny Baird and Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Tour golfer Michelle McGann each place a photo of a local missing child on their golf bags during each tournament in which they play. To date, Briny has hosted 163 pictures of missing children of which 35 featured have been recovered and Michelle has hosted 57 pictures of which 20 missing children featured have been recovered. In addition to today's donation, Canon Group and its employees donated in excess of $1.4 million dollars in support of relief efforts for victims of Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana and Mississippi in September 2005. The company also donated a Canon CXDI-50G Digital Radiography System to Slidell Memorial Hospital in Slidell, Louisiana, to assist with its rebuilding efforts.

National Center for Missing & Exploited Children
The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children is a 501 nonprofit organization that works in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Justice's Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.
