NCMEC is pleased to offer all registered participants at this year’s NCAC Symposium a glimpse into this powerful law enforcement tool designed to rescue children. Within this interactive lab, computers will be available for participants to access background identifiers and audio clues in hopes that these items may be recognizable or familiar to Lab participants. Accompanying each sanitized picture will be a real-time message thread where participants can post their comments and suggestions. You may have the piece of the puzzle that could lead to the rescue of a child victim.
