FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
JOHNSON COUNTY CENTRAL DISPATCH E-911 BECOMES MEMBER OF PREMIER PROGRAM DESIGNED TO PROTECT JOHNSON COUNTY CHILDREN
From the moment the report of a missing child comes in, to the resolution of the case, every action taken has the potential to make the difference between a successful recovery and a tragic outcome.
The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) developed the Missing Kids Readiness Project to promote best practices for responding to calls of missing, abducted and sexually exploited children. 911 call centers and law enforcement agencies are recognized for meeting essential training and policy elements demonstrating preparedness for responding to a missing child incident.
To meet the requirements of the Project, Johnson County Central Dispatch E-911 worked with NCMEC on their missing child policy to ensure it met the critical elements of NCMEC’s model policy for law enforcement agencies. In addition, Assistant Director Leigh Anne Bowling attended the Missing Children Seminar for Chief Executives provided by NCMEC in Bentonville, AR and ensured all telecommunicators and front line supervisors completed the necessary classroom and/or online training offered through NCMEC. By demonstrating remarkable leadership and making this commitment of training and preparedness, Johnson County Central Dispatch E-911 is communicating to its citizens and families that protecting the lives and safety of their children is a top priority.
Armed with the information, knowledge and operational resources gained through meeting the project criteria, Johnson County Central Dispatch E-911 is now positioned to respond more quickly, comprehensively, and effectively when a child’s life may be at stake.
Not only is Johnson County Central Dispatch E-911 now one of just 271 Missing Kids Readiness Project agencies in the United States who have achieved this status, they are the fifth Public Safety Answering Point within the state of Missouri.
We at the National Center would like to express our sincere gratitude and congratulations to Johnson County Central Dispatch E-911 for achieving this milestone, and for their diligence and commitment to children.
