RCMP - National Centre for Missing Persons and Unidentified Remains
Over the course of a year, the largest portion of missing person reports involve children. Every missing child case is different – some may be outright abductions while others may be instances of children simply wandering off. Regardless of this situation, every investigation involves a variety of roles and responsibilities for the investigator or police agency.
MPUR: Missing Children Level One Investigator is designed to enhance the knowledge of investigators in missing children investigations. In addition to reviewing the various stages of an investigation and the associated roles of the investigator, this course provides information on the role of the National Centre for Missing Persons and Unidentified Remains (NCMPUR) during an investigation and the services NCMPUR provides to assist investigators.
When you have completed this course you will be able to:
- Define the term missing child
