Freemasons offer ID program for children

Wednesday, April 20, 2005

Parents are invited to have their children videotaped and fingerprinted on Saturday, 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m., at the Brazil Wal-Mart on U.S. 40.

This child identification program is sponsored by Centennial Lodge No. 541 Free and Accepted Masons and the Clay County Sheriff's Department.

The CHIPS (Child Identification Program) is offered by Freemasons to help promote child safety.

An interview with each child will be recorded on a video CD to show mannerisms and speech patterns, fingerprints will be taken and a DNA sample will be obtained by swabbing the inside of the child's mouth.

All materials will be given to the parents and no information will be retained by the Freemasons or any law enforcement agency. The program is free and no appointment is necessary.

Questions should be directed to Sgt. Rob Gambill of the Clay County Sheriff's Department, 446-2535.
