Posted8/17/2019 1:00 AM
Wheeling Police Department's 911 Center is being recognized at the APCO International Conference for best practices by The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children for completing the Missing Kids Readiness Program.
Staff members worked to make sure Wheeling's missing child policy met the critical elements of the national center's model policy, completed online training and traveled to Alexandria, Virginia, to complete face-to-face training. The Wheeling 911 Center team is now ready to respond more quickly, comprehensively and effectively when a child's life may be at stake.
The center is the 18 communications agency in the state to have achieved this status.
