City Clerks Office of Chicago - KIDS ID PROGRAM

KIDS ID Program captures pictures, fingerprints, and key information about Chicago children, so that if a child ever goes missing, this information can be shared with law enforcement, media, and various child protection/child search groups in the hopes of locating the lost child.

Parents also receive an ID Card that contains the child's information, as well as a phone number to call after reporting a missing child to police. This service is free to Chicago parents. Kids IDs are currently not available at our Archer Avenue Office.


Bridges Pathways


Since 1997, The First Tee has introduced the game of golf and its inherent values to the more than seven million young people. On golf courses, in elementary schools and at other youth development organizations, we've helped shape the lives of young people from all walks of life by teaching them values like integrity, respect and perseverance through the game of golf.

In addition to learning fundamentals of the golf swing and the game, our character education and life skills programs help young people prepare for success in high school, college and life.
