Webinar – Missing Children & Child Sex Trafficking: Risk Factors, Indicators & How to Respond

Gov. Greg Abbott’s Child Sex Trafficking Team and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) are hosting a webinar to help agencies identify and respond to indicators of child sex trafficking among high-risk populations.

The Preventing Sex Trafficking and Strengthening Families Act, P.L. 113-183 (H.R. 4980), included mandates to state child serving agencies to immediately report all children missing from foster care to law enforcement and NCMEC, and ensure that staff are trained to identify, assess and provide comprehensive services to child sex trafficking victims. This session will provide an overview of risk factors for and indicators of child sex trafficking along with examples of promising practices in coordinated, trauma-informed responses. Presenters will provide:

  • context to why missing children and children in state care have been identified as at higher risk for sex trafficking, and
  • an overview of NCMEC reporting procedures and resources to help locate and recover children missing from care, including potential child sex trafficking victims.

The webinar is being offered on two dates: Oct. 2 and Oct. 9. Register at the buttons below.
