History

NCMEC has a regional office located in Lake Park, Florida, which started out as the first ever Adam Walsh Child Resource Center.  NCMEC’s Florida office continues NCMEC’s mission and  provides child protection education and prevention programs, case management services, and exploited child services. It is also the home of the federally mandated National Emergency Child Locator Center (NECLC). The NECLC is activated by FEMA and operated by NCMEC during presidentially-declared disasters to assist with the reunification of children who are separated from their parents or legal guardians during the disaster.

Core Services

Outreach and Public Awareness: Utilizing a train-the-trainer model, NCMEC’s Florida Regional Office provides training to child-serving professionals in diverse fields. Trainings include information on how to reach children, teens, and families with safety resources such as presentations, Child ID events, and other means of engaging the community.  

Case Management: When a child goes missing, NCMEC case managers play a vital role in collecting leads, adding value to tips, and coordinating information for the involved parties. 

Exploited Child Services: NCMEC’s CyberTipline is the nation’s reporting mechanism for online child sexual exploitation. Each day, CyberTipline analysts review reports of online sexual exploitation, notify service providers, and add value to leads and reports.

NECLC: Created by FEMA to provide assistance in natural disasters or other catastrophic events to help reunite families and provide critical resources.
