Training to help find the missing!

Every 30 seconds someone in the U.S. disappears, an average of 850,000 persons per year. Approximately 105,000 of these cases remain unsolved. Almost half of these cases represent unidentified persons.

This national conference provides attendees with investigative and forensic tools as well as updates on cutting-edge technology. A focus is placed on holistic strategies to foster collaboration across geographic jurisdictions and the importance of communication among local, state and federal law enforcement and criminal justice practitioners.
