Candidate Standard for Public Safety Telecommunicators When Responding to Calls for Missing, Abducted and Sexually Exploited Children

This candidate standard is a reference specifically for public safety telecommunicators to present the missing, abducted and/or sexually  exploited child response process in a logical progression from the first  response (initial call intake and information entry) through ongoing incident and case support (data query, entry and management in support of field/investigative work).

Standards Review & Comment

Each draft candidate standard is open for public review and comment for a 45-day period. Any person (e.g., organization, company, government agency, individual, etc.) with a direct and material interest has a right to participate by:

  • Expressing a position and its basis
  • Having that position considered
  • Having the right to appeal

All comments will be addressed by the standards working group.
