Volunteer Engagement for American Indian and Alaska Native Missing Person Cases
The Volunteer Engagement for American Indian and Alaska Native Missing Person Cases training program prepares and introduces the basic elements and practices for creating a volunteer engagement program to support law enforcement and communities in responding to emergent missing person cases.
This training program includes two components:
- Leadership Kick-Off Meeting is a 90-minute briefing that assists in preparing and gaining agency buy-in for the 8-hour volunteer engagement program training. This briefing is designed to be delivered virtually or in person.
- Volunteer Engagement for American Indian and Alaska Native Missing Person Cases is an 8-hour training that introduces the practices and strategy for developing, implementing, and maintaining a volunteer engagement program. This training can be delivered in person or virtually.
Every agency, tribe, and missing person situation will have different needs and challenges. This training will provide tribal stakeholders with options and considerations while building a volunteer engagement program to meet their unique needs.
The training was developed for tribal leadership, tribal members, tribal / local / state / federal law enforcement partners, community victim advocates, and other stakeholders who might be involved in emergent missing person cases. It is intended primarily for those who will have a role in developing and managing a volunteer program to be involved in emergency missing person cases.
This course was developed through the COPS Office Collaborative Reform Initiative Technical Assistance Center (CRI-TAC).
