Initial Response Strategies and Tactics When Responding to Missing Children Incidents | June 8, 2022

I appreciated that the course gave practical and specific information and exemplified real cases.
The course's clear instruction of procedure will help us to implement a community response plan, and communicate more effectively to law enforcement. I will recommend this training to officers!

AMBER Alert Activation Best Practices

I liked getting different viewpoints of different alert systems in other states, what did/didn’t
work from them, and tools others are using I had not heard about.
The presenters were very engaging! I did not realize all of the programs that are involved with AMBER Alerts.

Prosecutor Strategies for Child Sex Trafficking & Exploitation Cases
Live, Instructor-Led Virtual Training | May 10, 2022

I really appreciated the different ways to work with the victim, and also about the jury selection
process. There were a few questions brought up I didn’t think about, and I plan to use this new information in the future.
I appreciated the breakout sessions. I was able to learn from others who were more experienced in the area and what the approach is to these cases in other parts of the country.

Unresolved Missing Person Cases in Indian Country
Live, Instructor-Led Virtual Training | May 9-11, 2022

I thoroughly enjoyed this training. The instructors were top-notch and subject experts in the field. Although the course was online, the instructors made it feel like classroom training because of their level of engagement. Definitely looking forward to future courses.
The instructors were professional, humorous, very responsive to questions, and through their experience in this field were incredibly knowledgeable. Two of the best presenters I have seen in a while.
