The Provo City Police Department and the Provo City School District are partnering together to provide parents with free Child ID Kits. These kits will come home in an envelope with your child in the next few days. The purpose of the Child ID Kit is to provide necessary information to police officers in the event of an emergency, such as a missing child. Having this information ready to hand over to officers will assist and expedite their efforts during an investigation. Please see additional information about the Child ID Kits below.
1. What is a Child ID Kit?
The Child ID Kit offers a convenient place to store all pertinent identifying information for a child for quick retrieval for law enforcement, if necessary. Each Kit comes in a simple, mailable-sized envelope, including instructions and the tools necessary to create a complete identifying record of your child: fingerprints, DNA, description, and photo.
2. Are the Child ID Kits Private?
Police do not collect kits unless necessary for an investigation. The Child ID Kit helps to ensure a parent or guardian can promptly provide identifying information about their children to police officers in a timely manner.
3. Do I need to update this kit?
The Child ID Kit is only helpful in locating a missing child IF the information is current and accurate. We advise parents to update Child ID Kits each year with a new school photo.
4. Is there a cost for the Child ID Kit?
All Child ID Kits have been donated by sponsoring businesses and are free to families. We appreciate our generous sponsors and thank them for helping to keep our community safe.
We encourage parents to have a safety discussion with their children and review important emergency information such as phone numbers, addresses and family emergency plans. Please contact our local Provo Police Department if you have any questions.
