Code Adam was created in memory of 6-year-old Adam Walsh, who was tragically abducted from a Florida department store and later found murdered. Code Adam is a program of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, a nonprofit co-founded by Adam’s parents, John and Revé Walsh.
The program is a powerful search tool for lost and potentially abducted children. It is designed to help businesses, parks, government buildings and other establishments ensure that they have safety protocols in place to respond quickly and effectively to situations involving a missing child.
Code Adam is sponsored by Old Navy and is one of the country's largest child safety programs, currently used in hundreds of thousands of locations nationwide.
The Code Adam program’s search procedures and protocols can be easily implemented in a wide variety of establishments, and are offered free of charge.
The Code Adam Kit contains:
- Code Adam Decals
- A training video
- A poster with Code Adam search protocols for easy reference
- A manager’s checklist to ensure that you have fully implemented Code Adam
- An employee quiz to help employees learn the program
**If you require more than the maximum amount of 5 kits available through this order form or other resources, please contact us at CodeAdam@ncmec.org**
Code Adam participants commit to training employees in proper protocol for responding to reports of a missing child on the premises.
