ROUND ROCK, Texas (FOX 7 Austin) - The Round Rock Police Department will be offering children’s identification kits through their RRPD Kids ID program at no charge to the community.

Time is of the essence when a child goes missing. It is critical that law enforcement is immediately provided a current description and photo of the child.
The KIDs ID process captures vital information such as child appearance details, parent/guardian contact information, a color picture of the child and captures fingerprints using a digital scanner. All this information is printed onto a larger card that should be stored in a safe yet easy to access location.
