The AMBER Alert Best Practices – Law Enforcement Field Guide is a companion to the AMBER Alert Best Practices Guide and is aimed at law enforcement agencies and 1st Responders. It is designed to provide administrators with a document on what to expect in the event of an endangered missing or abducted child investigation, as well as provide their personnel with a reference manual to help jump start an effective response and investigation. The webinar will focus on raising awareness of areas that are consistently shown to be relevant and have an operational impact in these types of cases as well as how the guide can assist.
This webinar provides law enforcement and service providers with information on how technology (cell phones, phone chat lines, social networking sites, and internet advertisements) are used to seduce, lure, and control child victims of sex trafficking. The presenter discusses how to develop successful investigative techniques to proactively identify and locate child victims and corroborate the technology facilitated commercial sexual exploitation investigation. Case studies are used to facilitate the discussion. Pitfalls and challenges to these investigations are also discussed to help agencies identify them within their strategies and approaches to combating this crime.
Explore the importance of an immediate search and canvass when a child goes missing. Statistics show that the quicker responders can organize a search and canvass, the more likely that the child will be recovered.

Demonstrate examples of actual cases, which will compare and contrast an effective versus a flawed response where search and canvass was utilized.
