Free Child ID Workshop November 9

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

For Immediate Release: October 30, 2013

Free Child ID Kits Protect Children in Case of Emergency

Of the thousands of children that go missing each year, more than 97% are brought home safely. The missing child recovery rate has been on the rise in recent years thanks in part to Child ID programs, which help parents collect vital information about their children that the authorities can use in case of an emergency.

Parents of children ages 5-17 can get a free Child ID kit on Saturday, November 9 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Ypsilanti District Library. The kit includes fingerprints, DNA sample and a photo and video recording of your child. Parents retain all the information and none of it is kept by volunteers or organizations sponsoring the event.

The Michigan Child ID program is made available each year by volunteers from the Michigan Masonic Lodge. The Washtenaw County Sherriff’s Department will also be available to answer questions and offer tips about public safety and security.
