SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Ozarks Technical Community College is partnering with Soloman Masonic Lodge #271 to offer parents a way to have a little extra peace of mind.

A free child ID event with MoCHIP is happening at Lincoln Hall on the OTC campus Saturday, January 22, 2022, between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

Each family will get a USB device with a child’s:

  • Physical description
  • Photos
  • Digital fingerprints
  • Contact information

The packet will also contain dental impressions and scent specimens for search dogs. This is all information that would help emergency personnel find a child if they were missing. The data won’t be stored. The event is open to people of all ages.
