In 2015, NCA entered a partnership with the FBI to expand access to Children’s Advocacy Centers (CACs) to children and families involved in FBI investigations. This partnership ensures that our law enforcement partners have access to CAC services needed to investigate and prosecute federal child abuse cases. The partnership includes a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the FBI and NCA, and Accredited CACs may opt-in to participation.
CURRENT FBI-NCA MOU
On May 3, 2022, NCA and the FBI signed an updated version of the MOU. All Accredited CACs are eligible to sign-on to participate in the MOU. Participating CACs will have the option to sign-on fully or sign on with stipulations if there are agreements in the MOU that the CAC cannot meet, but they wish to make other services available. CACs that were participating in the previous MOU will need to sign-on to the new MOU to continue participation. Participating CACs may opt-out of the MOU or change their stipulations to participation at any time by notifying NCA.
