Law Enforcement Training
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children® provides law enforcement training for cases involving missing and sexually exploited children. Trainings are conducted face-to-face and through a variety of distance learning methods.
NCMEC hosts training sessions at its headquarters in Alexandria, Va., in the Jimmy Ryce Law Enforcement Training Center. This training center was named in memory of Jimmy Ryce, a 9-year-old who was abducted and murdered near his Florida home in 1995.
In addition to providing law enforcement with the investigative skills needed to respond to missing and sexually exploited children cases, NCMEC provides healthcare professionals training regarding the prevention of and response to infant abductions.
