Date: Saturday, April 21, 2012 - 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM
On Saturday April 21st, the Golden Ark Masonic Lodge #595 will be providing a free child identification program. The program will be conducted between the hours of 8:00am and 12:00pm at The Wayne County Community College District Downriver Campus which is located at 21000 Northline Road in Taylor. This is being done as a part of the Guidance Center's Downriver Dash 5k Race and Tot Trot.
Each child that goes through the process will receive a dental impression kit that can be done at home as well as a CD containing a photo, video, digital fingerprints and their vital information. Parents or guardians of children who participate must be present and fill out a permission slip for the child to receive this service. 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 and since 2005 several thousand Michigan families have received this valuable service. The program is also considered one of the most comprehensive programs of its kind by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
