This month's edition focuses on missing and unidentified persons cases.
As of August 2021, there are more than 34,000 unresolved missing and unidentified person cases in the United States, (according to the namus.nij.ojp.gov website). This total includes only a fraction of cases that occur on Tribal lands.
NCJTC is dedicated to providing training and resources to help you resolve these cases.
