SPRINGFIELD, --It's a way to make sure your children are protected if the worst was to happen.
It's called the MoCHIP program.
Parents say it gives them peace of mind if the unthinkable were to take place.
It's a proactive way to make sure your children's identification is available if they were to disappear.
Dozens of parents brought their children to Pathways United Methodist Church on Dale Street.
The process only takes about 15 minutes. There are four stations for children to go through. They get their height and weight documented. Volunteers also collected finger prints and dental impressions. Parents were given all the information on a disk. The information is compatible with the Amber Alert system.
"Any highway patrol car, most sheriff's cars, all the police cars in Springfield can take this chip and drop it in and your child's information be all around the state of Missouri in a matter of seconds," said Dale Roller with MoCHIP.
