The MasoniCh.I.P. program is free to parent/guardians and for children of all ages.
The event in Wallaceburg takes place at the Trinity United Church at 750 Wellington Street, Wallaceburg from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. tonight and tomorrow the 29th from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
What is the MasoniCh.I.P. program?
It uses modern, police-approved techniques to create a child identification kit for the ones you love.
The kit collects photos, video, voice recordings, digital fingerprints, dental impressions, saliva swabs as well as traditional statistical information (height, weight, hair and eye colour, etc.).
This information is matched to work seamlessly with Ontario’s law enforcement providers.
By being so compatible, the critical indentifying information can be broadcast and shared more quickly than ever before to assist with the safe recovery of missing children.
The MasoniCh.I.P. program is brought exclusively to families by dedicated Masons and their volunteers, free of charge along with our sentiment that “We hope you never need to use it.”
What’s in a MasoniCh.I.P. Kit?
When a child has a kit prepared, their parent or guardian will receive a printed colour data sheet with several ID card inserts, a CD-ROM storing all the digital information, and a sealed bag with the dental plate and cheek swab.
All this material and information is given to the parent or guardian.
No information is ever stored by the MasoniChIP program.
The following will be included on a CD:
Video of child, a photograph, height, weight, voice patterns, and finger printing. A DNA swab will also be taken and provided to the parents with the CD
