As part of this year’s Chelsea District Library’s summer reading kick off, the Olive Masonic Lodge #156 will provide a free child identification program on Friday, June 7 between noon-2 p.m.
The child ID program is being provided as a part of the summer reading kick off – ‘Dig into Reading’ event.
Each child who goes through the process will receive a dental impression as well as a CD containing a photo, video, digital fingerprints and their vital information, according to a press release.
Parents or guardians of children who participate must be present and fill out a permission slip for the child.
Children who have already received the service are encouraged to repeat the process every two years to keep the information in the completed packets current.
The Michigan Child Identification Program provides the family with everything needed for the Amber Alert System.
Since 2005, more than 60,000 Michigan children have received this service.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children considers the Michigan Child Identification Program to be one of the most comprehensive of its kind, according to the press release.
