Police chiefs attend training for missing children cases:

By TPR Staff 

Two South County police chiefs recently attended a national training seminar to improve the way missing children cases are handled when time is critical.

Pismo Beach Police Chief Jeff Norton and Arroyo Grande Police Chief Steven Annibali were two of 31 other chiefs, sheriff’s and 9-1-1 emergency managers chosen to attend the Chief Executive Officer Training Seminar.

“This has been one of the most valuable training experiences for me in my 28 years as a law enforcement officer,” Norton said.

The seminar, held at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in Alexandria, Va., is designed to provide attendees with a better understanding of the issues surrounding missing and sexually exploited children.

Instructors discuss the steps necessary to implement best practices for call takers, responding officers, investigators and command staff.

“The ability to bring the knowledge and resources of the (National Center for Missing and Exploited Children) to both our communities can be the difference that leads to a successful conclusion in a child abduction case,” Annibali said.

To date, more than 5,000 law enforcement executives have completed the training.
