Missing Kids - help find them  

There are thousands of
children who
do not make it
home each year,
and more who
fall victim to
The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, (NCMEC), is a private, (501)(c)(3) nonprofit organization which was created in 1984. The mission of the organization is to serve as the nation's resource on the issues of missing and sexually exploited children. The organization provides information and resources to law enforcement, parents, children including child victims as well as other professionals.

An estimated 800,000 children are reported missing each year more than 2,000 children every day. An estimated 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually victimized before age 18. Yet, only 1 in 3 will tell anyone. Clearly much more needs to be done.

Community is first line of defense against terrorism - KABC-TV
Call: 877-A-THREAT

(KABC) -- The Los Angeles Police Department says a key part of their preparedness against terrorism is community involvement through the iWatchLA program.

The LAPD knows that community involvement is key to keeping the city safe. That's why the department is launching its iWatchLA program to encourage and educate the public to be alert.

They're the eyes and ears of the LAPD and likely the first line of defense against a terrorist attack. That's why LAPD is reaching out to the public with its iWatchLA program, encouraging the community to report anything suspicious.

Police Commission
The Function and Role of the Board of Police Commissioners

Under the City Charter, the Board of Police Commissioners is the head of the Police Department. The Board sets overall policy while the Chief of Police manages the daily operations of the Department and implements the Board's policies or policy direction and goals.

The Board of Police Commissioners, originally created in the 1920's, is comprised of five civilians who donate their time to the City while maintaining their professional careers. They are appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the City Council. The Commissioners serve a maximum of two five-year terms. The Commissioners routinely spend 25-50 hours per week on Commission business, and serve as the citizens' voice in police affairs and as a means of ensuring more responsive and effective City government.

The Commissioners' concerns are reflective of the community-at-large, and their priorities include implementing recommended reforms, improving service to the public by the Department, reducing crime and the fear of crime, and initiating, implementing and supporting community policing programs.

ICE was created in 2003 through a merger of the investigative and interior enforcement elements of the former U.S. Customs Service and the Immigration and Naturalization Service. ICE now has more than 20,000 employees in more than 400 offices in the United States and 46 foreign countries.

The agency has an annual budget of approximately $6 billion, primarily devoted to two operational directorates Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI). These two operational directorates are supported by Management and Administration (M&A) and Office of the Principal Legal Advisor (OPLA) to advance the ICE mission.

Prevention / Intervention at the point of attack

by Bill Murray

Learning about self-defense may involve everything from learning a few common sense tips and recommendations about personal security to becoming involved in "combat training" .. some of which can be quite demanding physically.

But most important is to become self-aware of your surroundings, taking some basic precautions, and being ready to engage an attacker is a number of techniques designed to allow you to escape as uninjured as possible.
2-1-1 US - phone number that brings people and services together

bringing people and
services together

The essence of 2-1-1 is in its simplicity. Free and confidential, it's for everyone and can be remembered by everyone. 2-1-1 makes the entire human services sector at every level of government work more efficiently, has proven itself time after time as an invaluable resource in the aftermath of a diaster, and is the number to call to give help and to get help.

2-1-1 is an easy-to-remember three-digit phone number that brings people and services together. And 2-1-1 US is the entity that brings together the rich diversity of the national 2-1-1 movement..
