The Cumberland County Regional Communications Center (CCRCC) has achieved certification from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) as a member of the Missing Kids Readiness Project.
“This certification process involved a commitment by CCRCC and our law enforcement partners,” said CCRCC Director William Holmes. “We worked closely to develop and implement best practice policies and provide dedicated training to our staff for locating missing and exploited children.”
Certification requirements included the CCRCC director completing NCMEC management training, NCMEC training for each CCRCC employee, and a NCMEC approved missing persons policy be developed by CCRCC.
The certification process also required the approval and support of each law enforcement agency served by the CCRCC, including the Bridgton Police Department, the Cumberland Police Department, the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office, the Frye Island Police Department, the Gorham Police Department and the Windham Police Department.
“We also recognize CCRCC Deputy Director Deb Plummer and Supervisor Melinda Dyer for quarterbacking this important project and our law enforcement partners for their commitment and support of the project,” Holmes said.
Other agencies in the State whom have achieved the NCMEC certification are Knox County, Somerset County, Sagadahoc County and the City of Waterville.
