TOPEKA, Kansas – Free child identification kits will be available at upcoming events in Wichita and Topeka.

The attorney general’s office, in partnership with Cox Communications, will offer the kits, which allow parents to keep a child’s fingerprints, height, weight and a current photo on hand.

The information can be used by law enforcement officials to more quickly locate a child if he or she goes missing.

“Taking a few minutes to plan ahead and discuss safety measures with your children can help keep them safe from harm,” Schmidt said. “Keeping an identification kit with your children’s current information is one easy step that can help keep kids safe.”

The identification kits will be available on Friday, May 29, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Westridge Mall in Topeka and Towne East and Towne West malls in Wichita.

More information on children’s safety, including Internet safety, the Amber Alert program and recent recalls, is available on the attorney general’s website at
