The RRPD Kids ID program provides children’s identification kits at no charge to the community. One of the most important tools for officers to use when searching for a missing child is readily-available and up-to-date identifying information, such as a high-quality photo and fingerprints. RRPD uses Child ID Kits to provide parents with photos, fingerprint cards and other information in a packet that they can give to first responders if their child is ever missing or involved in an emergency. Round Rock Police volunteers run the program throughout the year at schools, churches and various public events.
Time is of the essence when a child goes missing. It is critical that law enforcement is immediately provided a current description and photo of the child. By enabling quick dissemination of the child’s information, the KIDs ID program is an effective law enforcement tool to help Police find and bring your child home. The KIDs ID process captures vital information such as child appearance details, parent/guardian contact information, a color picture of the child and captures fingerprints using a digital scanner. All this information is printed onto a larger card that should be stored in a safe yet easy to access location. Check out our Facebook page to see if we’ve got a Kids ID event coming up.
