Waterloo Masonic Lodge #787 will hold Child Identification Program at Fair
July 25, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The Waterloo Masonic Lodge #787 will hold a child identification workshop for families at the Monroe County Fair on Thursday July 25, between 5 pm and 8 pm in the Commercial Building at the Waterloo Masonic Lodge Booth. It is called IL CHIP or Child Identification Program. We will put together everything a parent needs to help the authorities help identify their child. What you will receive: COLOR PHOTO that records an image and height and is digitized on a convenient USB drive. RECORDED INTERVIEW captures the appearance, speech patterns, personal characteristics, and mannerisms for easy media distribution. A DNA SAMPLE taken through a saliva cheek swab is the latest tool in the scientific arsenal to make positive ID’s of lost children. FINGERPRINTS are the oldest form of positive identification since they are unique to every person.The video on an usb drive, the fingerprints ID card, and the DNA sample will be placed in an envelope and given to the parents or guardian. Once the usb drive is written, everthing that was recorded has been deleted on the computer. If you lose your envelope or usb drive, we will not be able to duplicate the information. We keep nothing.
Time is critical! Every year in the U.S. thousands of children become lost. A few are victims of abduction.
