The Commission on Missing and Exploited Children
Established in 1984, The Commission on Missing & Exploited Children is a nonprofit organization committed to the safety and protection of all children by providing prevention and intervention services.
The organization collaborates with a number of community partners, including the Juvenile Court of Memphis and Shelby County and the Memphis Police Department, and offers a number of important services, including safety education for children, counseling, child identification programs, distribution of fingerprinting kits for youth, and technical assistance to parents, law enforcement, and other organizations.
We provide free training for parents and educators individually or through schools/organizations and parent groups, on a variety of topics such as truancy, bullying/peer relationships, child predators/abductors, child and teen drug/alcohol prevention, gangs, internet safety, and runaways. Over the years, thousands of children and families have benefited from their prevention and intervention services.
