  Annotation: This report details the steps taken by the Federal Agency Task Force for Missing and Exploited Children in 1996 to fulfill its basic purpose of coordinating Federal services for missing children.
  Abstract: In a short period of time, the task force has made progress in improving the coordination of services for missing and exploited children and their families and in increasing skills and awareness of the agencies that serve them. The task force's resource guide has been disseminated to more than 15,000 law enforcement agencies throughout the country, and scores of other law enforcement agencies have access to the guide through the National Criminal Justice Reference Service. The newly established Jimmy Ryce Training Center is expected to train more than 250 law enforcement executives in its first year of operation. Federal activities and services have been further enhanced through the development of the International Division, Child Pornography Tipline, and Exploited Child Unit at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. These collaborative efforts have resulted in an increase of services for and attention to missing and exploited children and their families. The World Congress Against Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children and the Morgan P. Hardiman Task Force have helped to focus attention on services for missing and exploited children, both in this country and abroad, and to increase awareness of these services and cooperation in delivering them. Efforts of each of the task force agencies to serve missing and exploited children are described.
