Raytown Police Chief and Director of Communications Attend Department of Justice Program Focused on Protecting Children

 Raytown, MO – Chief James B. Lynch and Director of Communications James Brafford, of the Raytown Police Department, just returned from the prestigious Missing Children Seminar for Chief Executives (CEO) held just outside of the nation’s capital, at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) located in Alexandria, VA.

Chief Lynch and Director Brafford were invited to attend the 2-day seminar, held on November 8-9, 2015 as a guest of the NCMEC, joining 56 other law enforcement executives. This was the 162nd session of the CEO course and they are now two of nearly 6,000 who have completed this training.

The Missing Children Seminar for Chief Executives was designed to provide attendees like Chief Lynch and Director Brafford a better understanding of the issue of missing and sexually exploited children, how to specifically deal with the situation of a child who has been reported missing when time is critical, and how to access a multitude of resources available to assist in these cases.

Created in 1997 and funded by the United States Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice Delinquency (OJJDP), the CEO training 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.
