National Missing Persons Week

 

National Missing Persons Week is an annual event which takes place during the first week of August each year. It is coordinated by the National Missing Persons Coordination Centre (NMPCC) through the Australian Federal Police with the support of Australian State and Territory police. It aims to raise awareness of the significant issues associated with missing persons, and to reduce the incidence and impact of missing persons in Australia.

National Missing Persons Week was launched in 1997 and is seen as an effective way to raise the awareness of missing persons issues in Australia through targeted awareness and prevention campaigns using national and state-based media. Although National Missing Persons Week officially commenced in 1997, 2007 was the first time a national media campaign was developed and implemented. http://www.missingpersons.gov.au/awareness/campaigns/national%20missing%20persons%20week
