TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

One of the most important tools law enforcement uses when searching for a child is an up-to-date photo and descriptive information.

Pima Community College is giving families the chance to protect their child with a free AZ- Chip ID kit today.

The kits can greatly assist police in the crucial early hours of a search for a missing child. PCC and Arizona Freemason, a local men's social group are co-hosting the event. High school students will be performing the free services today; they are part of a federal grant program at PCC, which helps students from low-income families prepare for college.

The kit includes fingerprints, a color photo, a recorded interview and a DNA sample collected by a cheek swab. The child's family keeps all the identifying materials generated by the program.

Organizers say in the past they've seen all ages come through from newborns to teens. While the event usually caters towards children, because they are more vulnerable, organizers say adults can also go through the process.

This special event will take place from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on PCC's Downtown campus, the kits will be given out on a first come-first serve basis. Families can expect the process to take about 45 minutes.

I think I would be passing on having my kids tagged with a government tracking devise. How about you?
