Mercy Gilbert Medical Center is sponsoring a free child identification card clinic Saturday, helping parents keep their children safe by using some of the latest technology.
Partnered with ABC15 and the Arizona Crime Prevention Association, the clinic will provide parents with a laminated photo ID card for their children and a CD with digital fingerprints, photos, videos, voice recordings and safety tips.
Having such records provides police and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children with the necessary tools should they ever be needed.
The clinic will be held Saturday, June 23 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Mercy Gilbert Medical Center.
If you haven’t already registered for the event, there are limited walk-in appointments available.
The event is only open for children 3 years old and older to those with appointments or on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Arizona Crime Prevention Association will be holding another clinic on July 10.
