A Law Enforcement Guide on International Parental Kidnapping
(NCJ 250606) July 2018
Report, 100 page(s)
OJJDP developed this guide to help local, state, and federal law enforcement authorities successfully investigate international parental kidnapping cases. In addition to offering suggestions to prevent international child kidnappings by family members, the guide describes the role of law enforcement as the initial responder and investigator; discusses applicable laws, treaties, and legal remedies for child recovery and reunification; and outlines considerations for criminal prosecution and extradition of offenders.
