A simple trip to the library could save your child's life.

The Temple Police Department plan on issuing cards to kids ages 3 to 15 on Wednesday, June 27th from 10:15 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.

As a parent, you'll need to fill out an information sheet. Once done, you'll receive a hard plastic card with your child's photo, fingerprint, and vital statistics.

This will be for you. No information will be stored, and all records will be destroyed and deleted at the end of the event.

As a bonus, show your kids I.D. at the Dairy Queen down the street and get a free ice cream cone.
