MGC Executive Director Bill Seibert

In 2002, I was called upon by the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) to represent their organization on a new initiative with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC). The initiative was to serve on a steering committee comprised of command level law enforcement executives to advise on a new venture known as Team Adam.

Team Adam, named after Adam Walsh the abducted and murdered son of John and Reve Walsh, is modeled after the rapid response of NTSB. Carefully selected consultants, mostly retired, with law enforcement experience in child crimes, are strategically placed across the United States so they can rapidly respond to child abductions and provide resources and expert assistance.

Several years after the inception of Team Adam an already established group, Project Alert, was combined with Team Adam. Project Alert consultants handled cold cases involving missing children.  The Team Adam/Project Alert Steering Committee had the honor of being involved with the selection process for consultants and lending their leadership experience in the formation and growth of both Team Adam and Project Alert.  For the past five years, I have had the honor and pleasure of being the Chairman of the steering committee.

This spring, Team Adam/Project Alert leadership, with the assistance of the Team Adam/Project Alert Steering Committee, decided Team Adam/Project Alert had matured to a point the steering committee’s role had become limited. The decision was made to disband the steering committee and use committee members in other initiatives and roles.

To be a part of this worthwhile endeavor, since 2002, has provided me with experiences I could have not received anywhere else. The NCMEC leadership has given me insight to world renowned practices and high standards.  I will always cherish this opportunity and the opportunities that await in the future.
