Mission Statement

ACIM is devoted to assisting law enforcement in the search and early safe recovery efforts of children / the elderly (often with Alzheimer's) / disabled persons and college students via a rapid-response neighborhood alert program utilizing high-tech telephony systems.

Description

The Elderly - Often with Alzheimer’s and Dementia: two dreaded diseases of the elderly. They tend to wander off and often think they are going to go 'home'. That 'home' may be states away. They (The Elderly) tend to walk off and in some cases they will find a body of water, this is not good.
ACIM will make alert calls (when requested by law enforcement) to the last seen areas, to help find these individuals who can’t make rational decisions for themselves.

Disabled People who have been beaten, unconscious, or are suffering from memory loss. We will send out alert calls to find the guardian, parents, and friends. There may be other circumstances but a phone call will inform you if ACIM will run the case. Again, these alert calls are requested by law enforcement only.

ACIM’s Child Safety Education Program is an interactive and child-friendly program that reaches out to children in summer camps and provides safety tips to these children. The energetic and fun program provides take-home materials to the children in attendance to reinforce the information disseminated at the session. The program also promotes communication between children and their parents or guardians.

Child Abduction Response Teams (C.A.R.T.) consist of members of all facets of law enforcement, emergency response, non-profit organizations, and civilian search groups that come together when a child is abducted. As a member of teams across the United States, A Child Is Missing is the activation arm which mobilizes these teams for a swift response that would hopefully result in a fast and safe resolution. The C.A.R.T. Notification Program works closely with a team’s liaison to secure the team’s member list and their phone numbers (cell, office, and home). Once this list is submitted to A Child Is Missing in the proper format and entered into our system, we can activate your C.A.R.T. upon request.
