Since its inception, KinderVision has had a close partnership
with and deep appreciation for law enforcement. Recently, two things have
been brought to our attention by our law enforcement partners. First,
a comprehensive training in the area of child abduction and child homicide
case investigations was needed. Due to the unique and infrequent nature
of this crime, and the fact that of the 17,000 agencies nationwide, most
are very small, departments have little collective expertise in this area.
At our request, the Institute
of Investigative Sciences has developed a training program to assist
law enforcement with this issue so that law enforcement can assure families
that everything that can possibly be done to find a missing child and
the perpetrator happens in the most expedient and comprehensive manner
possible. This training will be delivered through the KinderVision Foundation
via its longstanding relationship with law enforcement agencies nationwide.
The second concern of law enforcement was funding for the training in the wake of budget cuts. That’s where you can help. Be the person who organizes the community to fund the Law Enforcement Training in your area. Be the company or organization that underwrites the Law Enforcement Training for your area.
KinderVision began with the murder and abduction of a
little girl and the detective working on that case narrates our English
video to this day. An officer from Dallas P. D. narrates our Spanish version.
California Highway Patrol appears on our informational video. The Indiana
State Police and Tucson Police Officers’ Association have sponsored
KinderVision in their communities. We use law enforcement explorers as
our paid staff whenever possible and law enforcement uses our video in
their school programs nationwide. We appreciate our partners in prevention
and the ongoing effort they make to protect our youngest citizens. We
ask your support in helping them make the good even better.
