For 40 years, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children has been the leading global nonprofit in child protection. Over the past four decades, NCMEC has assisted with the safe recovery of more than 400,000 missing children, stopped the spread of millions of pieces of child sexual abuse material, and protected children with groundbreaking prevention education across the world.

To commemorate this milestone anniversary and the hundreds of thousands of families we have positively impacted, NCMEC is hosting a celebration to

  • Honor excellence in law enforcement: officers and agencies who went beyond to protect children
  • Recognize partners, donors, and corporations that have made our mission possible
  • Celebrate the unbelievable power of hope through the survivors that we have assisted.
