CHIP: Child Identification Program Nov. 8


Sunday, November 8, 9 am —1 pm
Cambridge Masonic Hall
1950 Massachusetts Ave

Free and open to children from birth through college.
No reservations necessary.

The Cambridge Police Department in conjunction with the Masonic Lodges which meet in Cambridge, and local dentists is sponsoring this program.

CHIP provides families with identification material designed to help find a missing child as quickly as possible. The Masonic CHIP Program is the most comprehensive service of its kind anywhere. CHIP is provided free of charge to the public, with all of the identifying items generated during the event given to the child’s family.

The CHIP identification materials include:
* VIDEOTAPE: A brief videotaped interview that can be quickly distributed to the media in order to reach a huge audience.
* FINGERPRINTS: Fingerprinting is a well-known means of identification. Resourceful parents keep fingerprints available should the need arise.
* TOOTHPRINTS: A toothprint bite impression is quick and easy. Teeth, like fingerprints are unique. A dental imprint gives both accurate and important information for identification purposes.


This event is being sponsored by the the Cambridge Police Department in conjunction with the Masonic Lodges which meet in Cambridge,  and local dentists.
