Senior Inspector, Missing Child Unit United States Marshals Service
In 2020 there were over 365,000 missing children entries in NCIC, with over 29,000 children reported missing to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC). The U.S. Marshals Service’s (USMS) Missing Child Unit and NCMEC are at the forefront of the mission to reduce that number and help recover these children safely. Through Operation Find Our Kids and other focused missing child operations, the USMS and NCMEC have become a force multiplier in the search to recover missing children. This presentation will focus on: resources available to support local, state, and federal missing child investigations across the U.S; how to ensure a missing child’s recovery is child-centered and trauma-informed; and ways your organization can play a role in the recovery of missing children. This workshop will only be recorded and available On-Demand from August 9, 2021 until December 17, 2021.
