E25: Missing Persons (w/ Lorna Ferguson)

This week I talk to Lorna Ferguson, Ph.D. student in sociology at the University of Western Ontario, and Director of Operations for the Canadian Society of Evidence-Based Policing (CAN-SEBP). Lorna’s current research focused on evidence-based policy, policing, and missing persons. Specifically, she examines police responses to missing person cases by conducting interviews with police personnel from across Canada – missing persons coordinators, Search and Rescue members, police detectives, frontline officers, with the hope of filling in knowledge gaps on ‘what works’ and ‘what doesn’t work’ and ‘what we still don’t’ know’ in terms of how to most effectively and efficiently respond to missing person reports.
