“Not everyone watches the 6 o’clock news. Having access to members of the community through non-traditional means of communication can only help in the search to locate missing children,” said Calgary Police Chief Rick Hanson. “The more eyes we have on the lookout, the greater the chances we can quickly locate a missing child and safely reunite them with their family.”
The CodeSearch program is available for all law enforcement agencies in Canada to utilize. MCSC would be pleased to discuss this program, and other Search Tools available to law enforcement, at any time. For more information please contact: Tricia Harder
How Does CodeSearch Technology Work? CodeSearch partner employees download a smartphone application and sign up as field agents to be notified in the event a child goes missing. When a child goes missing, MCSC can send out geo-targeted alerts to any field agents in the area where a child went missing or is expected to be located. If law enforcement requires additional resources in the search, MCSC can access resources from ATVs to helicopters to search and rescue trained personnel who will be committed to the search. A Content Management Dashboard allows MCSC to locate field agents. A request to mobilize will appear on selected field agents smartphone application. Content Management Dashboard allows MCSC to search for required resources.
