The Tommy Foundation is delighted to announce the Amber Alert Investigative Strategies for Missing and Abducted Children training that will be held from October 7th – 10th 2013 at The Smullin Center in Medford, Oregon. This will provide training for 100 Law Enforcement officers from Jackson- Josephine – Klamath – Siskiyou and Douglas counties, Oregon State Police, FBI, representatives from Jackson Co. District Attorney’s office, and Children Services’ providers who have all registered to attend.
Others that will be attending the training are family members who currently have or have had a missing child. In attendance will be Desiree Young – mother of Kyron Horman; Kim Waller – mother of Kaelin Glazier; Yvonne Company – mother of Domingo Ramirez; Mika Moulton – mother of Christopher Meyer; Vicki Kelly, Dannielle Trotter and Katie Trotter- the family of Tommy Kelly.
This is the first time training like this has been offered in southern Oregon . Instructors from all over the nation will provide information and class scenarios. The Tommy Foundation, based out of Jackson County, Oregon, was instrumental in helping make this training a reality. Having emergency personnel, government employees, media, and others participate in this training will make our state better equipped to handle a child abduction.
Many other agencies have been instrumental in helping to make this training a reality. We would like to thank our community for helping us to make this a success. Without the local businesses that have contributed to this endeavor we would not have been able to successfully put this training together for our participants.
