oin us and other first responders, child protection officials, and community members, from the US/Canadian border region, to discuss topics related to endangered missing, abducted and exploited children.

A panel discussion by regional experts, sessions on trafficking among Native American and Canadian Indigenous communities and a hands on multinational, multi-disciplinary tabletop exercise built around a cross border abduction scenario will be all be part of this training.
