Dog Tags

Google and Wikipedia have given me information about what's on a dog tag and the history of dog tags, but none of them have answered my specific question, so maybe you fine folks can help.

Are there any circumstances under which a civilian is issued dog tags or something similar? Would those dog tags have different information than a soldier's?

(If it helps, this is Stargate 'verse and I'm thinking of characters like Daniel and Teal'c and Vala.)
