Supervisory Officer Checklist

The Supervisory Officer Checklist below guides oversight and decision-making to promote adequate information collection and immediate implementation of investigative resources in response to reports of endangered missing or abducted children. Effective supervisory officer response is critical to the success of the investigation, as this officer is the catalyst to enable guidance and overall investigative coordination and oversight. Supervisory officers are encouraged to familiarize themselves with this checklist prior to any reports of endangered missing or abducted children.
