CPFU wishes to recognize our University of Connecticut Buildings & Grounds Communications Dispatchers for successfully completing the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) Missing Kids Readiness Project criteria (formerly known as the 911 Partner Program).
Reports of missing children can be among the most challenging, and emotionally charged cases a law-enforcement agency will ever experience. The attitude and approach an agency and its officers take in responding to reports of missing children may very well determine whether the child is recovered promptly and safely or remains missing for months or years or, even worse, is never recovered. Each stage of the case, therefore, from initial investigation through successful recovery, forms a critical component of a thorough law-enforcement response. The Missing Kids Readiness Project promotes the best practices for responding to calls of missing, abducted and sexually exploited children.
Our UConn B&G Dispatchers put in a great deal of time assimilating these necessary strategies—ones that enable law enforcement to exercise more control over events, react more effectively to unexpected occurrences, and enhance the likelihood of swift and successful case resolution. Please join us as we acknowledge their significant accomplishment.
