The 11th Annual Missing and Unidentified Persons conference (MUPC) and pre-conference will be held in Atlanta, GA on August 15-19, 2016. The conference provides training and education to 300+ search and rescue and law enforcement professionals from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico on effective tools, techniques and strategies for locating and recovering missing persons. MUPC blends practical application and skills development with technology and science in order to provide first responders with the critical information they need to know about what works best.
Presentations will include:
- DNA can be used effectively to identify individuals
- Discussions and presentations on effective and practical technology, contingent on circumstances
- Pending innovations that can help first responders identify those who are missing
The conference also provides participants with instruction on how to interact, communicate with, and support those who become displaced or disconnected from their families as a result of disasters, mass tragedies, casualties, physical or developmental disabilities, mental health, age, culture, or even physical boundaries.
- Sixteen hours of instruction will be available through a series of four pre-conference sessions
- Twenty hours of instruction will be offered through the conference (August 17-19)
Fox Valley Technical College’s National Criminal Justice Training Center (NCJTC) and the National Association For Search And Rescue (NASAR) are partnering on the conference.
