The Roland Police Department is currently handing out child identification kits to local residents.
Roland Police Chief Tommy Sessums said that each kit contains vital information that can be filled out and kept somewhere safe just in case something were to happen to your child. That information may include things such as a dental chart, identifying features, hair samples, medications, allergies and more. The kits also come with ink so users can add their child’s fingerprints.
Sessums said he ordered 250 kits as a “start,” but that he will order more if he sees a need. “We’ve done this several times in the past,” he said, and there is always a need for the kits.
If you live in Roland and would like a kit for your own child, stop by the Police Department, 801 S. Roland Road.
