Mapping Missing Children


In the spate of numerous reports of missing children in 2008, MGI in collaboration with the VPA took the initiative to map the incidence of these reports. The mapped data was analyzed spatially by gender, the month in which the report was made and the police division in which these incidents occurred. The resulting maps were presented to Hear the Children's Cry, which is an advocacy group committed to the wellbeing and welfare of Jamaica's children.
