Chief Inspector US Marshals Service - Missing Child Unit
The U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Missing Child Unit (MCU) was established following the passage of the 2015 Justice for Juvenile Victims of Trafficking Act (JVTA). This law granted the USMS the authority to assist in all missing child cases, with or without a fugitive nexus. The MCU provides program development, review, and refinement with the ultimate goal of assisting federal, state and local partners to recover as many missing children as possible in the interest of public safety. This presentation will explain what the program entails and how the Marshal Service can support its law enforcement partners with missing child cases.
