NCMEC: The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children recognizes “Comprehensive MASONIC CHIP” as one of the most comprehensive Child Recovery and Identification Programs in the nation, providing parents with necessary items to aid law enforcement in recovery, identification of children as well as prosecution of perpetrators. The National Center continues to lend their strong support to programs that are indeed “comprehensive”. They recognize the Freemasons’ dedication to provide the equipment and the volunteer hours necessary to generate completed ID kits for the parents in our communities, realizing that few parents would take the time to compile such detailed information on their own. They also encourage our Masonic Jurisdictions to operate the ‘full comprehensive MASONIC CHIP which necessitates fostering relationships with dental professionals and engaging in the generation of the Toothprint dental impressions, to aid law enforcement. Toothprints aid in identification in cases of fire, plane crashes, earthquakes or terrorist activities.
