Police Expert Network on Missing Children

AMBER Alert Europe’s Police Expert Network on Missing Children consists of over 50 law enforcement experts from 18 European countries. Goal of the Network is to bring together law enforcement experts in the field of missing children.

In order to save more missing children across Europe, members can quickly contact and consult each other about missing children cases. The Police Expert Network on Missing Children also provides specialist support, advice and training to its members.

What is the Police Expert Network on Missing Children?

“With 37.5 percent of Europeans living near the border, a missing child can easily cross to a neighbouring country. Because of the network, police experts know exactly who is the single point of contact for missing persons in another country”
