(WLNS) – Governor Rick Snyder signed a bill to assist law enforcement with identifying special needs children.

The new law will create a fingerprint database of every child in the state with special needs, who may not be able to identify themselves.

Guardians of the children will be required to pay for both the fingerprint and photo of the child for the records.
