The Maine Attorney General’s Office is hosting two day-long training sessions entitled “Missing and Abducted Children: A Survival Guide for First Responders and Initial Investigators.” The first session will be held in South Portland on Wednesday, February 2, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at National Semiconductor at 5 Foden Road. The session will be repeated in Hampden on Thursday, February 3, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Hampden Police Department at 106 Western Avenue.
The training will be conducted by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. It is designed to provide critical information to officers whose knowledge, skill, and ability will make the difference between a prompt recovery and a protracted investigation of a missing or abducted child case. Topics to be covered include: Child abduction, family abduction, runaways, online victimization, sexual predators, recovery techniques, investigative resources, and agency planning.
Members of the media are invited to attend either session.
