Posted Date: 12/10/2012 2:00 PM
Guilford Metro 9-1-1 was recently named a National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) Partner after completing enhanced, specialized training. This program acknowledges GM 9-1-1’s commitment to making child safety a priority.

“It is important for the community to know that nothing is more important to Guilford Metro 9-1-1 than protecting the lives and safety of children,” said Wesley Reid, director of GM 9-1-1. “This partnership means we are better prepared to follow proper procedures when handling calls for missing and exploited children.”

Emergency 9-1-1 calls regarding missing and/or sexually exploited children are often the first step toward saving a child. 9-1-1 call centers must have policies in place and training to help handle these calls and NCMEC helps provide the necessary skills and resources needed to respond to these calls.
