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 deadline to register is June 24, 2019. Team composition is critical to a CART’s implementation and long-term success. Commitment from the Chief Executive Officer(s) CEO(s) is required before a team will be reviewed and accepted for placement in CART training. Each jurisdiction is different in its approach to responding to missing and abducted children. Some jurisdictions have more resources than others; however, the following disciplines are suggested for a working team. Representatives from: law enforcement; legal agencies; probation and parole; communications; victim advocates; social service agencies; emergency management personnel to include fire/rescue and search and recovery units; school resource officers; and other key stakeholders that the CART Coordinator and CEO(s) identify as necessary to a CART’s overall ability to be successful in the recovery of a missing or abducted child. This is 3.5 day training program.
Upon completion of this training, you will be able to: • Leverage resources to develop an effective CART Team • Define roles and responsibilities for an effective Incident Command • Deploy a search and canvass operation • Conduct successful investigations • Sustain the CART Team
