The Kids Identification and Safety Seat (K.I.S.S.) annual campaign was launched on May 16, 2016, by the Illinois Tollway and Illinois State Police District 15.
Surveys indicate that up to 90% of families will at some point temporarily lose a child in a public place. Kids IDs are a simple tool that can help locate lost children by providing police an accurate description.
Child safety seats save lives and prevent injuries. Unfortunately, Illinois State Police have found that approximately 90% of child safety seats they inspect are improperly installed.
Nearly a dozen free K.I.S.S. events are scheduled this summer throughout Northern Illinois. These events offer parents and caregivers the opportunity to have ID cards created for children age 3 and older. Specially trained professionals take photographs and fingerprints of children and gather vital information to include on an ID card that can be referenced in an emergency. Also, certified child passenger safety technicians check child safety seats and help with proper installation.
