Honeywell Partners With National Center for Missing Children


Parents and grandparents are growing more concerned about child abductions and kidnappings according to a joint survey by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) and Honeywell.

The nationwide survey shows abductions and kidnappings second only to drug use as a child safety concern. However, the study also shows a lack of knowledge about child safety resources and prevention strategies.

Honeywell is partnering with the NCMEC to promote abduction prevention. Leading the partnership for Honeywell and NCMEC is Revé Walsh, who founded the NCMEC with her husband and “America’s Most Wanted” host John after their son Adam was abducted and killed in 1981. “The Honeywell/NCMEC team will bring valuable safety and abduction prevention information to parents, teachers and communities,” said Revé Walsh in a statement. “Education and awareness are the keys to preventing abduction and exploitation of children. This partnership will provide a strong loud voice for our children.”

The NCMEC partnership is part of Honeywell’s new community outreach initiative, Honeywell Hometown Solutions.  “Honeywell is committed to the issue of family safety and security and we are proud to be joining hands with the National Center to bring educational resources and awareness of child abduction prevention strategies to communities across the country,” says Tom Buckmaster, president of Honeywell Hometown Solutions. “Our employees are ready to play an important role in this partnership by helping to spread the word about resources available to parents and grandparents.”

Honeywell employees in communities across the country will attend training sessions hosted by NCMEC and be given materials they can share in their own communities to help educate parents and grandparents on where to go for information on keeping their children safer.
