The AMBER Alert Training and Technical Assistance (T/TA) Program brings you a wide variety of training opportunities to improve the investigative response of local, regional, state, and tribal law enforcement to high risk victims, children in crisis and the commercial sexual exploitation of youth. Through this program, you will increase collaboration, improve skills, and develop effective policies and best practices to protect and safely recover missing, endangered, and abducted children. AMBER Alert training courses can be hosted by local, regional, state and tribal law enforcement training academies, agencies, or organizations. We encourage you to collaborate with your law enforcement, public safety and non-profit partners to identify your training needs and bring training to your community. If you are looking for technical assistance, we will work with you to identify a problem, address an existing problem, provide an objective evaluation of a problem, develop or introduce a new program, address a sensitive issue, or aid in examining the effects of a new statute, policy, or procedure.
