Police group to be certified in preventing child abduction


The Metropolitan Law Enforcement Council, a consortium of 43 local police associations, including Easton, is to receive its national certification in child-abduction prevention in February from the US Department of Justice. Easton Police Chief Allen Krajcik said the task force conducted a mock child abduction drill in Norwood in July that helped the group meet standards needed to become the country’s 19th nationally certified team, and only the second Northeastern state team to receive the honor. “I am very pleased to have a well-trained, certified team that is able to rapidly respond to a child abduction,’’ the chief said in an e-mail. “It is important for communities to share their resources by forming regional teams such as Metro-LEC; the team is just one of the many services that are available to our community.”
