Child Identification Program


Each year approximately 725,000 children are reported missing in the United States. The Kids ID program gives parents the peace of mind that they are prepared for the unthinkable.
As a resource to California parents, the Masons of California provides free fingerprinting and photo identification for children of all ages. Parents also receive an identification sheet that includes space to record a child's height, weight, eye and hair color, and distinguishing marks. This sheet will be extremely valuable to authorities if a child ever becomes missing or abducted.
The entire process takes only a minute and no information is ever recorded on the computer equipment.
Since the program began in 1998, more than 800,000 California children have received this important documentation. California lodges provide this free service in Kids ID booths at fairs and other community events across the state. To find the Kids ID booth nearest you, see the Kids ID Calendar for Northern California or Southern California.
If you are a California Mason and would like to post a Kids ID event so that it will appear on this calendar, please contact us.
