The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children® is committed to provide training, technical assistance and resources at no cost to law enforcement personnel and others who investigate cases of crimes committed against children, specifically cases of missing children and child sexual exploitation.
NCMEC hosts traditional classroom training sessions at its headquarters in Alexandria, Va., in the Jimmy Ryce Law Enforcement Training Center. Online courses are available through NCMEC's distance learning program, NCMEC University Online.
In addition to providing law enforcement with the investigative skills needed to respond to missing and sexually exploited children cases, NCMEC provides healthcare professionals training regarding the prevention of and response to infant abductions. As of April 2015 NCMEC has trained more than 312,000 law enforcement, criminal/juvenile justice and healthcare professionals.
