Take steps toward implementing a successful law enforcement led 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.
**Child Abduction Response Team (CART) training is a three day course that can be delivered onsite or as a real-time virtual class. Please indicate your preference on the request form.** Team composition is critical to a CART’s implementation and long-term success. Commitment from the Chief Executive Officer(s) CEO(s) is crucial and it is encouraged that the key members of the team attend the CART training. Successful working CART’s teams are made up of law enforcement, legal agencies, emergency management (fire/search/rescue), and other key stakeholders identified by the CART coordinator and CEO(s) who are necessary to the CART’s overall ability to be successful. **For information concerning continuing education units, please view our [policies](ncjtc.fvtc.edu/policies#continuingeducation) page.**
