Test the organization’s response in conducting an initial investigation into searching for a missing or abducted child using the Incident Command System (ICS). Employ strategies and responses in mitigating and resolving the emergency. Participate in a multidisciplinary tabletop exercise, developed by the Department of Homeland Security to build cohesiveness within the investigative team when responding to an emergency.
The goal of this training is to build a level of cohesiveness within the investigative team while working to respond to the emergency. Participants will take part in a multi-disciplinary, multi-jurisdictional tabletop exercise built around a realistic abduction scenario. Participants will work through initial deployment, response, investigation, recovery and reunification procedures utilizing appropriate local resources. Tabletop exercises are developed and delivered utilizing Department of Homeland Security - The Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) doctrine and may be used to fulfill DHS exercise requirements for the participating organization(s).
Upon completion of this training, you will be able to: • Develop and deploy effective response strategies in missing and abducted child cases • Identify and leverage and coordinate community resources in an effective team response • Adapt the appropriate investigative response as the investigative environment changes
