Child Safety Education Events
Florida strives to lead the nation in issues relating to missing persons and child safety. Currently, there are 27 certified Child Abduction Response Teams (CART) nationwide. Florida has seven of them, making our state the model in rapid response for critical, emergency search activation. In addition, law enforcement around the state, work tirelessly to prevent child abductions and recover missing children and endangered persons.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) in conjunction with the Missing Endangered Persons Information Clearinghouse Advisory Board and sponsored by the Florida Missing Children's Day Foundation invites the public to attend missing person safety events that are held around the state. By attending these safety events, you may consult with a FDLE member regarding missing person issues, gather child and endangered person information publications, and acquire Florida Missing Children's Day gear.
FDLE works closely with multiple partners to bring these events to your area and are often accompanied by the Tallahassee Community College's Public Safety Institute's bloodhounds and associated bloodhound partners across the state.
