Leadership for Missing & Abducted Children in Indian Country



Day 1


Time
Session

8:00 AM - 8:30 AM
Welcome and Introductions


8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
Missing, Abducted, and Exploited Children in Indian Country
What does current research reveal about recent incidents involving missing, abducted and exploited children in Indian Country? This module explores local and national trends, victim and offender profiles, the use of different classifications for missing child cases, Federal statutes and jurisdictional issues, and the social ramifications associated with these incidents.

10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Family Perspective
How does the crime of child abduction affect the family? This presentation gives participants an opportunity to hear first-hand how family members cope with the pain and anguish of the search for an abducted child. Their experiences can help investigators improve their response to future cases involving missing and abducted children. This is why we are here.

11:00 AM - 11:30 AM
NCMEC Resources
This National Center for Missing & Exploited Children offers a remarkably diverse array of resources to parents, children, law enforcement, and other government agencies. This presentation will highlight what tribal agencies need to know to bring these resources to bear in their investigations.

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Lunch (on own)


12:30 PM - 1:30 PM
Leadership Issues in Missing and Abducted Children Cases
This module will focus on issues of interest to CEOs who are evaluating their agency’s ability to respond effectively to a missing or abducted child case. Topics include the importance of memorandums of understanding, defining the role of telecommunication centers, supervising search and recovery operations, and monitoring the use of volunteers in the investigation.

1:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Case Study
This session takes a hard look at a real case to find out what lessons can be learned from the experiences of other tribal communities. This case study will highlight the significance of each phase in an abducted missing child investigation. Participants will work through the case, look at the potential implications of activating or not activating an AMBER Alert, and evaluate lessons learned.


Day 2


Time
Session

8:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Threats to Children in Indian Country
This module will explore the dangers faced by children in Indian Country which contribute to victimization through abductions, exploitation and maltreatment. Participants will discuss various contributing factors such as runaways and throwaway children, technology facilitated crimes, trafficking and exploitation of Native American children and sex offenders.

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Scenario
This hands-on learning experience will give participants an opportunity to work through a single incident involving an abducted child as the investigation evolves through five distinct phases. The focus will be on planning and leadership issues, with emphasis on mobilizing the community, training, policy versus practice, resource management, and interagency cooperation. The exercise will target the role of tribal leaders and law enforcement command staff in preparing their agencies and their communities to respond to a missing or abducted child incident.

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Lunch (on own)


1:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Resources for Tribal Communities
Many communities face the challenge of providing awareness and prevention training to children and parents, reducing the risk of abduction and exploitation. National organizations such as Boys and Girls Clubs, 4-H, Police Activities Leagues (PAL) and others provide resources and curriculum to provide these services. Participants will learn about available programs and how to access and implement in their communities.

4:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Evaluations and Closing
