Long-Term Missing and Unidentified Persons
Presented by Sheriff Paige Kneeland
Long-term missing person investigations can prove very challenging. This course will not only cover the California Penal Codes as related to missing persons, as well as biometric descriptors used to assist in identifications of unidentified remains, but it will also provide creative resources that can assist your investigation. Sources of potential biometric materials (including fingerprint exemplars, dental records, and DNA reference samples) will be provided. Multiple databases will be discussed to include their capabilities and resources of assistance benefits. Skip tracing methods will also be discussed in how they are used to generate additional information to aid in your investigation.
