OJJDP’s AMBER Alert Training and Technical Assistance Program has launched a set of online investigative checklists to help tribal law enforcement respond to and investigate cases of missing, endangered, or abducted children. These checklists provide strategies for first responders, investigative officers, and supervisory officers involved in a missing or endangered child investigation.
