WORTHING, S.D. (AP) - Officials will be in Rapid City on Friday, Saturday and Sunday 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 says it’s a comprehensive child identification program designed to assist in the event a child becomes missing,

The events at Rushmore Plaza Civic Center are Friday from noon to 9 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
