Why Does NCMEC Matter To Your School?

Founded in 1984, the non-profit National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) serves as the national clearinghouse and resource center for information about missing and exploited children.

Throughout the past 33 years, NCMEC’s national toll-free CyberTipline, 1-800-THE-LOST® (1-800-843-5678), has received more than 4.4 million calls. During the 2016-17 school year, Gaggle registered 605 images with NCMEC, protecting schools and districts from the risks involved in handling child pornography.

Watch this webinar to learn more about how NCMEC continues to assist law enforcement in the recovery of missing children, child sexual exploitation, child pornography, and child abduction, and how Gaggle Safety Management works with this incredible organization to help keep your students safe.
