Did you know that more than more than 600,000 persons go missing in the United States each year? While many are located quickly, tens of thousands of persons remain missing for more than one year. Investigations into their whereabouts are then considered "cold cases" by their communities and the authorities. Join us to improve investigative techniques and efforts on long-term missing and cold case investigations. Learn the dynamics of conducting these type of cases through examination of case studies and interactive discussions. Uncover specific investigative techniques, including DNA technology, and best practices to improve the skills and capacities of law enforcement personnel assigned to long-term missing cases.
This two-day course will focus on the following topics: • Solving cold cases with DNA technology • Managing and supervising unresolved investigations • Best practices • Analysis of a real long term missing cold case
Upon completion of this training, you will be able to: • Improve identification of long term missing cold cases • Leverage DNA technology and CODIS database in your investigative work • Utilize effective investigative techniques for managing long-term missing investigations
