Save Our Children: Stop the Violent Predators Against Children DNA Act of 2002 - Directs the Attorney General to establish and maintain a database solely for collecting DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) information with respect to violent predators against children. Authorizes Federal, State, and local agencies and other entities to submit DNA information for the database and to compare DNA information within the database.

Directs the Attorney General to make grants to States to improve programs to decrease recidivism of such predators.

Requires the maximum sentence to be imposed for a crime of violence, including a sex crime, against an individual under age 18 that would, in and of itself, establish the offender as such a predator, without regard to any mitigating circumstance that would otherwise apply.
