Training of stakeholders is an important element in the tackling the issue of missing children. We are working together with experts from different backgrounds and organisations who share their know-how, experiences and existing practices to better address the issue of missing children and its root causes.
Webinar: An introduction to cold case missing person investigations
In cooperation with CEPOL, the European Law Enforcement Training Agency, we addressed the issue of cold cases to create awareness for the need for cold case investigations. Participants from the EU law enforcement community were presented with cases to gain insights into the possibilities for and (new) techniques in cold case investigations. A special focus was also given to the ICCAP, an international cooperation on cold cases between universities, police academies, non-governmental organisations and law enforcement.
We gave a workshop to children aged 11 - 12 in which they received tools to protect themselves against going missing or an abduction and online dangers such as online grooming.
We advocate the use of risk triage in missing children cases.
We believe that being informed is key in preventing children from going missing.
We help countries in the setting up of national AMBER Alert systems.
We assist in solving cold cases in cooperation with students and law enforcement experts.
We implemented information dissemination on missing persons in the Euroregion.
