Joann Brown, Communications Administrator of Coral Springs Police Department, just returned from the prestigious Chief Executive Officer Training Seminar, held just outside of the nation’s capital, at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) located in Alexandria, VA.
After receiving an invitation to attend the specifically designed training seminar for Law Enforcement Executives and 911 Emergency Center managers, Communications Administrator Joann Brown attended the program on Sunday & Monday, March 17th and 18th, as a guest of the NCMEC.
Joann Brown joined 50 other 911 Emergency Managers, Chiefs and Sheriffs who were also selected and invited, to attend the 141st session of the CEO course, and Joann is now one of more than 5,000 who have completed this training.
The Missing & Exploited Children Seminar for Chief Executives was designed to provide attendees like Communications Administrator Joann Brown a better understanding of the issue of missing and sexually exploited children and how to specifically deal with the situation of a child who’s been reported missing, when time is critical.
Created in 1997 and funded by the United States Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice Delinquency (OJJDP), the CEO training discusses the needed steps in implementing best practices for call takers, responding officers, investigators, and Command Staff.
Once candidates are selected to attend, all travel and lodging expenses during training are covered by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children through a grant by OJJDP.
