Two New Classes Focus on Missing Children in Indian Country Resources & Investigations

Two new online, self-paced courses have been developed by the AMBER Alert in Indian Country/AMBER Alert Training and Technical Assistance Programs for the Missing Child Investigations in Indian Country (MCI-IC) Series.

The popular MCI-IC Series’ growing roster of classes, accessible via the National Criminal Justice Training Center, is designed to help law enforcement respond to cases of missing children in Indian Country.

The latest classes are:

  • Course 6 | Organization of Resources (Phase 3): This course addresses a case’s expanding investigation, and details how investigative effectiveness – and a successful case resolution – can be achieved through the organization of resources and processes.
  • Course 7 | Continued Investigations (Phase 4): This class focuses on missing child investigations that have not been resolved during preliminary investigative efforts and thus progress to a long-term or continued investigative phase.

Each one-hour eLearning course is free to participants, and ideal for telecommunicators/911 operators, law enforcement personnel, prosecutors, and tribes/tribal partners.

The new offerings join five other MCI-IC courses that so far have been created for the series. They are also one-hour in length and free for registrants:

  • Course 1 | Introduction to Missing Children in Indian Country
  • Course 2 | Initial Assessment in Missing Child Investigations in Indian Country
  • Course 3 | Nonfamily and Stereotypical Abduction Assessment in Missing Child Investigations in Indian Country
  • Course 4 | Initial Law Enforcement Response (Phase 1)
  • Course 5 | Escalation of Resources (Phase 2)
