Updates have been made to an e-learning package for police responding to reports of missing persons.
Changes to the Missing Person Search e-learning package include a new definition of a missing person and an absent person. There are also considerations about finding a missing person dead or alive.

The training package is aimed at all operational police officers and police staff.
