Sacramento, CA
Teen boy alone in parking lot

Course description:
Cases involving “runaways” do not receive the same degree of attention or investigative resources that may have been utilized in a reported abduction case. However, many of the children “thought” to be runaways are actually abducted or lured away. This course will provide attendees with the knowledge needed to effectively approach these cases from the onset by reviewing case studies and discussing best practices and lessons learned.
Please note that this training is only intended for Law Enforcement.
