AG Jackley to Deliver Keynote Address at SD CHIP Annual Event

 
PIERRE, S.D.-  Attorney General Marty Jackley will be the keynote speaker at the SD CHIP annual luncheon that will take place on April 9, at the Ramkota Hotel in Rapid City. The event will run from 11:30 a.m. -1:30 p.m. (MST).  

This annual luncheon recognizes the Masons and their supporters and the important work they do to promote the SD CHIP program statewide.  The SD CHIP program was introduced in 2007 with 20,500 children participating.

SDCHIP is part of MASONICHIP, an initiative of the Masons of North American that generates completed packages of various identifying items of children for parents or guardians.  The types of identification that are collected include: dental impressions, DNA cheek swab, digital still photo, fingerprints and video imaged interview. All of the identifying materials generated by the program are returned to the child’s family to be kept as an identification kit in the event that a child becomes missing. This kit will aid law enforcement in the recovery of a missing child. The program is offered to the public at no charge.

Agencies who assist in the implementation of the program include: Masoniship International, South Dakota Academy of Physician Assistants, South Dakota Sheriff’s Association, South Dakota Dental Association, South Dakota Highway Patrol and the Attorney General’s Office.
