|Check Center to issue ID cards
In an effort to help law enforcement officials more quickly identify missing children, Check Center in Rohnert Park will issue free child identification cards on Sunday, Aug. 18, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m..
The laminated wallet-size cards are to be carried by parents, guardians, and other caregivers. The front of each Child Print ID Card will bear the child’s photo and address, as well as emergency contact information.
There is also a list of descriptive characteristics of the child, such as age, height, weight, eye and hair color. The reverse side of the card carries the child’s fingerprints, a list of identifying marks such as scars and birthmarks, and a list of medical conditions such as allergies.
Each year, there are many children reported missing. To assist in efforts of locating missing children, the date on the Child Print ID Card can give police officials quick and easy access to vital information.
Parents and caregivers interested in receiving a free ID card for their children can do so at Check Center, located at 6650 Commerce Blvd., Commerce Plaza on August 18 from 11 am to 2 pm.
“We welcome the opportunity to sponsor this important effort in Rohnert Park,” said Holly Wesley, store manager of Check Center.
“This is our ninth year of providing this service to our community. The response we received in previous years has been overwhelming. It is important we continue to provide an avenue where people can come and get their child ID photo updated, as well as any other vital information.”
