Securitas North America has partnered with the nonprofit National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) to provide focused training to the security services more than 100,000 security officers.
NCMEC is focused on finding missing children, reducing child sexual exploitation and preventing child victimization. The partnership between Securitas and NCMEC will give security officers access to special training for identifying situations involving missing and exploited children and reporting to law enforcement to support recovery. Geotargeted posters of missing children will also be dispatched to Securitas officers, providing more eyes and ears in the field. As part of a three-year commitment, Securitas will also make a financial contribution and the two organizations will share resources to further the NCMEC mission.
The NCMEC training modules and resources will aim to raise awareness around issues relating to missing and exploited children and child safety. Officers will also attend a tailored e-learning event covering endangered runaways, child sex trafficking, preventing child abduction and recognizing indicators of child endangerments.
Securitas and NCMEC will also share resources to build awareness within the organizations and externally through media outreach and thought leadership. Together, they are committed to addressing child safety and advancing NCMEC’s mission.
