REDFIELD, S.D. (AP) - State officials will be in Redfield Saturday to encourage parents to register their kids in a comprehensive child identification program.
SDCHIP generates packages of various identifying items of children for parents or guardians. The information includes dental impressions, a DNA cheek swab, a digital still photo, fingerprints and a video image interview.
The South Dakota Child Identification Program is part of MASONICHIP, an initiative of the Masons.
Attorney General Marty Jackley thanks the organization for creating the program and putting in the time to volunteer and administer it throughout South Dakota.
The Saturday event runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. CDT.
