From the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, a policy designed to serve as a general reference that can be modified to fit the specific needs of any agency regardless of size. It shows the progression of the missing-person response process from case intake through first response, case investigation, recovery, and case closure. http://www.missingkids.com/en_US/documents/ModelPerson.pdf
From the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children – The way in which reports of missing or sexually exploited children are handled is important and can mean the difference between life and death for many children. Yet, there is no standardized process that is used by the nation’s 9-1-1 Call Centers when answering these types of calls. These standards have been created to address that problem. They provide a step-by-step protocol of how call takers should handle calls of missing or sexually exploited children. http://www.missingkids.com/en_US/documents/911standards.pdf
