GTPD attends training program focused on protecting children

Together 30 Chiefs, 9-1-1 Communications Directors, Missing Persons Clearinghouse Managers and designated Command Staff, the CEOMEC training seminar discusses the needed steps in implementing best practices for call takers, responding officers, investigators, and command staff.

Captain Anthony Minosse, the Gloucester Township Police Department Operations Division Commander, returned from the Missing & Exploited Children Seminar for Chief Executive Officers, held at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in Alexandria, VA.

This specialized course about resources available to Gloucester Township Police teaches valuable tactics in protecting and saving children. Minosse traveled to attend this invitation-only program, designed exclusively for Law Enforcement Executives, 911 Communications Center Directors, and Missing Persons Clearinghouse Managers on May 7 to 9 as a guest of NCMEC.

Together with 29 other Chiefs, 911 Communications Directors, Minosse is now one of more than 6,000 public safety leaders who have completed this specialized training program. The Missing Children Seminar provides attendees like Minosse in-depth information, policies and resources to handle cases of missing, abducted and exploited children.

Created in 1997 and funded by the United States Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice Delinquency, the CEOMEC training seminar 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.
