In the fall of 2021, the Department launched a free municipal Identification card in the hopes of paving the way for more residents to obtain housing, employment and vital services and benefits only accessible with a state-issued id card.
Many vulnerable residents of Kansas City, Kansas, such as the unhoused and victims of crime do not have state issued identification or the means necessary to obtain the documents to apply for one. The KCKPD ID includes the individual's legal name, photo, signature, date of birth, personal demographics and address or last know location, and, if applicable, Kansas State ID card number.
Only residents whose identity can be verified can be issued a KCK ID card. You must be an adult, documented resident of Kansas City, Kansas to apply.
