Clay Center Mason Lodge 134 is offering a FREE KS CHIP Child ID at the Clay Center Back To School Fair @ the Clay Center Community High School 1630 9th ST August 11 2012 from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM Take 25 parent / child safety education sheets will also be provided by the Missing Children. This kit is available form newborn up to any adult that might need to have this done. There is no cost to have this done. The only information downloaded is to a CD is given to the parents at the event. The only thing that we keep is the permission slip signed by parent or guardian. No outside person gets the information or fingerprints.
The KS CHIP kits provide information that is important if the child becomes abducted or lost. The information is important due to that the parents will not always be close when the child is found. The kit will include photos of the child and their digital fingerprints. There is no ink involved with the fingerprints. The law enforcement and Missing Children can use the photo with their equipment and be able to do an age enhancement of the photo, if the need arrives. There is a short movie clip with the child being interviewed. This can be used by law enforcement for voice comparison, etc. Questions that are asked: What is your name? Who is your best friend's name? Where you like to play? How do you get home from School? Where you go when you are upset? These questions are asked to help give the law enforcement a starting place should the need to arise. This is important if the child just need some cool down time away from the parents. This video also gives the authority the behavior action of the child when they are interviewed.
The parent will be supplied a cotton swab that they can use to capture a DNA sample. The kit also includes all the vital information as well as medical and scars. All of this can be important should law enforcement have to use the disc to find a missing child. Law enforcement may need to know if the child needs medical attention while waiting to be returned to the parents.
The parents should be able to contact the child's dentist and have them make a CD of dental x-rays for the kit as well. The kit can be downloaded on a computer flash drive and the parents could have the kit with them to take on a trip. For more information go to www.kschip.org
This video or CD is not given to anyone but the parents. The questions vary with the age of the child, adult or preschool child interviewed.
In the last 4 years since Clay Center Masonic Lodge been doing these events we have made up a total of 791 kits.
