How can you more effectively identify victims of child exploitation and trafficking during a seven-minute traffic stop? Are there indicators you might be missing? The presenters will discuss an innovative program designed to combat all types of child victimization during front-line officer encounters. They will share techniques that can be coupled with routine police practices to significantly increase the likelihood of identifying victimized children and their offenders. The workshop will include examples of cases where officers used these interdiction techniques to rescue children.
Be able to identify research-supported indicators of an endangered child and a high-risk threat to children.
Have a basic understanding of the behavioral patterns of both suspects and victims.
Know how to articulate their findings that are supported through research.
