Child Identification Program MDCHIP


sponsored by the Grand Lodge of Maryland A.F. & A.M. and by the National Conference of Grand Master’s of North America.

Thank you for visiting the Freemason’s Maryland Safety Education and Identification Program. Our program is a comprehensive identification and protection program designed to give families a measure of protection against the ever increasing problem of missing children. This program is provided “free of charge” to every Maryland family who wishes to participate.


It is our sincerest hope that no family will need the resources provided in our packets, but if the need should arise we believe the information that we provide from our program will be instrumental to law enforcement agencies in recovery of missing children.


The Maryland Freemasons schedule and bring this fine program to communities throughout Maryland. MDCHIP is a part of the National Masonichip network ( sponsored by the Conference of Grand Masters of Masons in North America. All identifying items generated at MDCHIP Events are placed in a pack and given to the parent or guardian to take home for safe keeping. If their child becomes missing, the pack can then be provided to law enforcement to aid in recovery and identification. The Maryland Freemasons keep nothing but the permission form signed by the parent prior to participation in the event.


What we provided; CD with child’s name, address, height, weight, eye color, hair color, description of distinguishing marks, notes on health concerns, birth date, parental / guardian contact information, 3 to 4 photos, A video interview of the child, Digital fingerprints and DNA sample.


All porvided Free of Charge by The Freemasons of Maryland.
