Additional Information:
This training is designed to provide law enforcement investigators and investigative supervisors with the information necessary to properly understand, recognize, and investigate cases involving missing and abducted children.

Participants will get an overview covering scope and scale issues related to missing and abducted children as well as available resources. Participants will become familiar with how to manage a missing or abducted child case including initial response as well as an overview of interviewing and interrogation techniques. Participants will evaluate how to make a behavioral assessment of a crime scene based on the evidence and how the resulting offender profile can alter the direction of a missing child investigation, examine the most common factors that have been shown to contribute to the wrongful conviction of persons accused of a crime and analyze legal issues including search warrants and interrogation related to a missing or abducted child.

Who Should Attend:
Investigative personnel for law enforcement and other government-related child protection agencies are strongly encouraged to attend.
