Municipal ID Card Program
On Tuesday, September 30, 2014, the City of Richmond and SF Global LLC hosted a press conference and reception in support of the launch of the City of Richmond’s new Municipal Identification program.
SF Global LLC is the contractor that will administer this Municipal ID Card Program, which will provide residents with an official form of identification that includes an optional prepaid debit card function. Recognized by the Police Department and other City agencies, the card is backed by MasterCard and will be accepted at thousands of commercial establishments.
The Richmond City Council approved Ordinance No. 16-11 N.S., amending chapter 2.64, Article II, of the Richmond Municipal Code authorizing a Municipal Identification program to provide for the issuance of Municipal ID cards to residents of the City of Richmond for the purpose of improving public safety, increasing civic participating, and supporting local commerce.
The City believes that the Richmond Municipal ID Card (ID card) will make it easier for all Richmond residents to participate in local and regional commerce and that it will fill a void by providing an official form of personal identification for many Richmond residents who currently lack one. It is the City’s intent that ID card will provide residents with a means of proving their residency in the City, for the purpose of accessing City programs, services and activities, as well as helping to substantiate their identity to law enforcement personnel. Residents may also have the ability to utilize their ID card as a pre-paid debit card.
The Agreement between the City of Richmond and SF Global, LLC for the Operation and Management of the City of Richmond Municipal Identification Program was executed on February 2014. Review the following links to find out more information about the program:
