911 Center Receives Accreditation from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children

The Forsyth County 911 Center was recognized by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) following a months-long training program, the Missing Kids Readiness Program. The training program promotes best practices for responding to calls of missing, abducted and sexually exploited children.

“The 911 Center’s training and preparedness in responding to a missing child incident is paramount to ensuring the safety and security of the County’s children,” said 911 Center & EMA Director Tom Cisco. “This recognition demonstrates to the community and surrounding counties how Forsyth County goes above and beyond for excellence in public safety services.”

To meet the requirements of the program, the Forsyth County 911 Center also worked with NCMEC on its missing child policy to ensure the County meets the critical elements of NCMEC’s model policy for call center agencies.

“Armed with the information, knowledge and operational resources gained through meeting the program criteria, Forsyth County 911 Center is positioned to respond more quickly, comprehensively and effectively when a child’s life may be at stake,” said the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. “Hopefully, other agencies in Georgia will recognize the achievement of the Forsyth County 911 Center and will want to follow suit.”
