CARLYLE - Last week, Carlyle District Lions Club members attended the Carlyle Elementary School, handing out Child ID Kits to families.

These kits are designed to be used if it is necessary to recover a missing child.

The kit provides an easy way of documenting helpful information in one place that families keep at home in case of an emergency. The most important tools for law enforcement are having an up-to-date quality photograph and descriptive information of a child.

The club did some fingerprinting on site and talked with parents about how the club hopes they never need a kit, but having the information documented is a way to be proactive. 

The identification kits are a project of Lions Quest Canada (The Centre for Positive Youth Development). The Carlyle District Lions Club appreciated the opportunity they had to distribute the kits to the elementary school parents.
