Take steps toward implementing a successful Child Abduction Response Team (CART) by bringing together a team of experts whose knowledge, skills, and abilities will be beneficial in a child abduction case. Join us to learn how to develop a multidisciplinary Child Abduction Response Team (CART) for responding to endangered, missing, or abducted children. Hear about the impact a child abduction has on the family and learn the fundamentals of developing an effective responsive CART team. Examine incident command considerations, search and canvassing operations, CART activation, and resources to improve the response, investigation, search, and canvass activities associated with missing children investigations.
The CART Commander plays a critical role in organization and installation of a successful Child Abduction Response Team (CART). As a prospective Child Abduction Response Team (CART) leader, you will learn about the command and supervisory duties related to the development, sustainment, and deployment of the CART. You will gather best practices from other commanders and discuss lessons learned in the development of their team's multidisciplinary approach for responding to a missing or abducted child incident. Acquire new tools to help you organize training and prepare for the planning process of CART certification.
Enact a culturally significant multidisciplinary team response to a missing or abducted child incident. Discuss team development and composition, study search and canvass techniques, review legal considerations, examine case studies, and engage in a practical scenario tabletop exercise.
