The Portage-Brady Masonic Lodge #340 will be providing a free child identification program. The program will be conducted from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at 103 W. Prairie St. at the Old Car Festival in Vicksburg on Saturday, June 13.
Each child that goes through the process will receive a dental impression 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. Since 2005 over 70,000 Michigan children have received this valuable 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.
