The eighth course in the Missing Child Investigations in Indian Country (MCI-IC) online training series is designed to expose law enforcement to the significance of victimology for risk assessments. When investigations lack a crime scene or witnesses, the only commonly known factor is the victim's identify. An extensive victimology is therefore critical in assessing the child’s risk of victimization. Victimology is a comprehensive collection of personal information of the missing child and their immediate family that addresses personality, lifestyle, and patterns that reveal specific risks, vulnerabilities, and stressors for the child. The victimology forms the basis for the missing child risk assessment.
Course #8 is two hours in length.
