COPPERAS COVE, Texas – The Copperas Cove Police Department KIDDO Card Child Identification Program is BACK!
The next date to have a KIDDO card issued for your child will be February 1, 2014 from 9am-1pm.
The KIDDO Card is a child identification card created to identify a child 12 years of age or younger. The new card will contain the child’s full name, date of birth, sex, hair color, eye color, height, weight, parent/guardian’s name, address, and a current photo. The card is designed to be maintained by the parent/guardian to identify a child if necessary, NOT to be held by a child as a form of self-identification. Children are abducted across our nation everyday and sometimes the vital information necessary for law enforcement officers to start their search is forgotten. In this instance the KIDDO Card is simply provided to the Officers to start their search.
The new KIDDO Card is a PVC construction and the same size as a Driver’s License. The goal of the department is to hold a Kiddo Card event every 3 months in the police department community room. In addition to the regularly scheduled dates the Kiddo Card system will be set up during special events the city holds throughout the year.
