For over 20 years, My ID Club has worked to ensure children’s safety by providing free identification cards to children and their guardians. My ID Club began as an initiative of the King County Police Union and has since attended over 2,500 community events throughout the state.
Facilitated by the King County Police Union, the service is free to both parents and host organizations. The program has distributed identification cards at a wide variety of community events, including school gatherings, health fairs, sporting events, and local family fun nights.
Organizations that would like to provide this resource to their communities must submit a formal request with a contact name and phone number; the name, date, and time of the event; an estimate of the number of child attendees; and secondary date options. To be approved for an event, organizations must have a minimum of 25 children attending and a venue with access to an electrical outlet. They must also provide a table and folding chairs, and if the venue is outside, the area must be covered.
