WHP to Participate in Crimes Against Children Patrol Operation
From October 23-October 25, the Wyoming Highway Patrol (WHP) will be participating in the National Crimes Against Children Patrol Operation.
In order to help increase law enforcement awareness to the most vulnerable of our population, our children, the WHP participates in this operation as they are committed to proactively protecting children during their day-to-day operations.
This can only be achieved by being aware and vigilant of indicators for when a child is at risk of victimization.
The Crimes Against Children Patrol Operation will focus on the following:
- Increasing awareness of uniformed officers’ objective to remain alert for opportunities to protect children.
- Identifying missing, exploited, and at-risk children.
- Identifying individuals who may be a high-risk threat to children.
- Identifying registered sex offenders who may be out of compliance with requirements.
