The State of Illinois is offering a new service associated with your driver's license and/or state ID. The link below will bring you to the Secretary of State's website where you can add two emergency contacts to your license or ID data.
If you are incapacitated in some way your license or ID can be checked through the State's computer database by a police officer. Your emergency contacts will be retrieved so your loved ones can be contacted.
This only takes a couple minutes to complete but can be invaluable in an emergency particularly for children and senior citizen's.
Our Department encourages everyone to participate!
