WE DEMAND MANDATORY TRAINING FOR EVERY LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER IN CONNECTICUT In June 2007 Connecticut Governor Jodi Rell signed a bill that addressed the dysfunctional process that law enforcement officers use in responding to the report of a missing person. The final details of the law are being worked out by the Connecticut Police officer Standards and Training Council and they have until January 1, 2008, to finalize their procedures. We have been told that the changes in police procedure will be recommendations and it will be up to individual towns and cities to decide their own procedures. THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS!!! We have 700 Missing People in Connecticut and there is no central clearinghouse to track the cases. Police have little or no training in how to process a missing person case, and LACK basic DNA expertise. FOR THE SAFETY OF EVERY CITIZEN IN CONNECTICUT, WE THE UNDERSIGNED, DEMAND THAT EVERY LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER IN THE STATE RECEIVE MANDATORY TRAINING ON HOW TO PROPERLY RESPOND TO A REPORT OF A MISSING PERSON. THERE ARE CRIMINALS RUNNING LOOSE MANY MISSING PERSONS ARE HOMICIDES. If you are a Connecticut resident please sign and pass on to family members and friends. Thank you for helping improve the safety of our citizens.
