MOCHIP is a comprehensive child identification & protection program designed to provide families a proactive means of preparation should their child or teen become missing.
This program is provided free of charge!
How does it work?
The program consists of five major components:
- Digital Photographs
- Digital Fingerprints
- Child Information and Emergency contacts
- Dental bite impression
- Two (2) laminated ID cards
-- combined, provide a powerful identification and recovery tool.
The child’s digital photographs & fingerprints, and their vital information are given to the parent or guardian on a mini-CD computer disk. The information on the disk is "AMBER ALERT" compatible.
The dental bite wafer provides an impression of the biting surface, which like fingerprints, is unique to each individual. This wafer also collects enough saliva to provide a DNA sample and a source scent for trained canine search and recovery teams.
The Masonic Children’s Foundation retains no information concerning the children—only a signed permission form is retained by the Foundation for statistical purposes.
