Child Identification Cards


The child identification cards are provided for the parent or guardian to have with them and in the event that a child is missing, they have a photo identification and pertinent information that they can provide law enforcement personnel immediately to expedite a search. Time is very crucial in these situations and without photo identification, a search may be delayed.


Our child I.D. program is funded solely through donations by our community. Without the help from the community, local businesses, grants, or other organizations the child I.D. program would not be able to continue.

Sponsors can get their business name or logo imprinted on the cards to show credit for their contributions. If you would like to make a donation, or become a sponsor, please contact our Public Relations office.


Our equipment is portable and available to set-up at your location for an event. Also cards can be made on an individual basis at the Hobart Police Department by appointment only. To set up an appointment please call Public Relations office at 219-942-1125 ext.1070.
