EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Eau Claire County’s Child Abduction Response Team recently received a special gift that will help them with their daily duties.
The CART team received a donation from Canon USA. The company donated a printer and a camera system to help law enforcement keep kids safe.
The CART team is set up through the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
Detective Don Henning at the Eau Claire County Sheriff’s Office serves as the coordinator for the CART team and says the new equipment will be very beneficial for their day to day work. He says cameras are important for preserving evidence and documenting the scene.
“I can’t thank Canon enough for their generous donation,” says Henning. “It’s a huge benefit for us just to be able to have that readily available and at our fingertips.”
According to Eau Claire County, the team consists of members of all facets of law enforcement, emergency response, non-profit organizations, and civilian search groups that come together when a child is abducted.
Henning says that Canon donates new equipment to CART teams about every 12-18 months.
According to Henning, there has only been one abduction case in Eau Claire County in the past 8 years and it was a successful recovery.
