Today, ASIS and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® (NCMEC) announced plans to provide private security professionals with free online learning focused on preventing child victimization. This free e-training will be available on the ASIS website in mid-February.
ASIS Law Enforcement Liaison Council (LELC) Chairman Briane Grey, ASIS President Dave Tyson, CPP, NCMEC CEO John Ryan, and former LELC chair Brian Reich, CPP, announce a new e-learning program for private security professionals to help combat child victimization.
Produced by the ASIS Law Enforcement Liaison Council (LELC) and NCMEC, and endorsed by the National Association of Security Companies (NASCO), the 40-minute, self paced e-training module can be completed by individuals or entire security teams. Each section of the module is followed by a series of questions to enhance the learning experience. Topics covered include ways security officers can assist law enforcement and tips to help recognize aspects of victim behavior.
NCMEC CEO John Ryan emphasized that this partnership adds more eyes and ears on the street to help find missing and victimized children. “We now have an army [with NCMEC, ASIS & NASCO] of security professionals helping to protect our children."
Covenant Aviation Security, LLC and G4S Secure Solutions (USA) Inc piloted the program and helped refine the content.
