Sandra Barfield (Police Services) attended the prestigious Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Training Seminar held just outside the nation's capital at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in Alexandria, Va. This seminar is specifically designed for law enforcement executives and 911 emergency center managers and provides attendees a better understanding of the issue of missing and sexually exploited children and how to specifically deal with the situation of a child who's been reported missing, when time is critical.

Created in 1997 and funded by the U.S. Department of Justice, office of juvenile justice delinquency, the CEO training discusses the needed steps in implementing best practices for call takers, responding officers, investigators, and command staff.
